The EVAL-ADL5902-ARDZ shield illustrates the functionality of the ADL5902, a 50 MHz to 9 GHz
65 dB TruPwr™ RMS responding RF power detector. The voltage outputs of the ADL5902 are
routed to the ANALOG IN connector of the Arduino base board. This allows the RF power detector’s
output voltage to be easily digitized and processed by the Arduino base board’s integrated six-
channel ADC. The output of the ADL5902’s on-board temperature sensor is also routed to one of the
The power supply for the board comes from the Arduino base board through the POWER
connector (5V). So there is no need to connect an external power supply.
The EVAL-ADL5902-ARDZ is compatible with EVAL-ADICUP3029 and Linduino. For both
platforms, PC software GUI applications (ADICUP3029, Linduino) are available using which, the
user can make RF power measurements and also calibrate the device to decrease measurement
error. Device drivers for ADICUP3029 and for Linduino Uno are also available, which the user may
use to develop their own code for RF measurement, device calibration, and more.

The shield makes RF power measurements based on a 3-point calibrated linear response
characterized by input RF frequency and power. By using default calibration coefficients, the 3-
point linear response corresponds to the datasheet specifications of ADL5902. By using the user
calibration coefficients, the 3-point linear response corresponds to the calibration made by the user.
The user calibration coefficients and default calibration coefficients are INITIALLY the same.
Therefore any unchanged calibration at specific frequencies in the user calibration coefficients
retains the default values

Note on Calibration
Calibration can be implemented using 2, 3, or 4-point calibration techniques which can be used to
approximate nearly linear response characteristics such as in ADL5902. A typical characteristic of
the ADL5902 at 2.14GHz input is shown in Figure 1. This is Figure 50 from the ADL5902 datasheet.
Figure 1. ADL5902 Characteristic Response at 2.14GHz
Two-point calibration creates an approximated response characteristic utilizing two points on the
typical characteristic line. By choosing two points, (VOUT1,INPUT1) and (VOUT2,INPUT2), from
the typical response characteristic, a line using two point form equation can be obtained and is
given by:
This derives SLOPE1From this equation, the point intercept form of the approximated response
characteristic is given by:
This derives the INTERCEPT1. Given the SLOPE1 and INTERCEPT1, any point (INPUT,VOUT)
along the approximated line is defined in the equation:
The range of INPUT is the device's dynamic range. SLOPE1 is in mV/dB and INTERCEPT1 is in
To implement three-point calibration, suppose three points on the typical response characteristic,
Three-point calibration can be implemented by applying the two-point calibration concept to
(INPUT1,VOUT1) and (INPUT2,VOUT2), and applying it again to (INPUT2,VOUT2) and
derived to define a line, while for (INPUT2,VOUT2) and (INPUT3,VOUT3), SLOPE2 and

INTERCEPT2 are derived to define another line. This makes a piecewise approximation using the
two lines derived; the first is valid for INPUT of -62dBm to INPUT2, and the other is valid for
INPUT2 to 3dBm. This technique can further be expanded to four point to implement four-point
This is also applicable by using ADC codes instead of Vout.
