The MACP-010572 is a Temperature Compensated Directional Power Detector that operates from 6 to 18 GHz. It can detect a minimum power of -16 dBm. This detector requires a small amount of bias for proper performance. The total bias current is less than 0.5 mA. It is available in a miniature, surface mount, lead less plastic package and is well suited for applications including power monitoring and leveling in Point-to-Point radios, IMS, Radar, VSAT, EW, and Aerospace & Defense systems. The MACP-010572 is fabricated on a well established GaAs process featuring full passivation for performance and reliability.
