AD8315 datasheet



The AD8315 is a complete low cost subsystem for the precise control of RF power amplifiers operating in the frequency range 0.1 GHz to 2.5 GHz and over a typical dynamic range of  50 dB.

It is intended for use in cellular handsets and other battery operated wireless devices. The log amp technique provides a much wider measurement range and better accuracy than controllers using diode detectors. In particular, its temperature stability is excellent over a specified range of −30°C to +85°C.


1. Complete RF detector/controller function
2. >50 dB range at 0.9 GHz (−49 dBm to +2 dBm, re 50 Ω)
3. Accurate scaling from 0.1 GHz to 2.5 GHz
4. Temperature-stable linear-in-dB response
5. Log slope of 23 mV/dB, intercept at −60 dBm at 0.9 GHz
6. True integration function in control loop
7. Low power: 20 mW at 2.7 V, 38 mW at 5 V
8. Power-down to 10.8 μW


1. Single, dual, and triple band mobile handset (GSM, DCS, EDGE)
2. Transmitter power control
