Part Number : AD637JD
Function : High precision, wideband true RMS-to-DC converter
Package : DIP 8 Pin Type
Maker : Analog Devices
The AD637JD is a complete, high accuracy, monolithic rms-to-dc converter that computes the true rms value of any complex waveform. It offers performance that is unprecedented in
integrated circuit rms-to-dc converters and comparable to discrete and modular techniques in accuracy, bandwidth, and dynamic range.
A crest factor compensation scheme in the AD637 permits measurements of signals with crest factors of up to 10 with less than 1% additional error. The wide band width of the AD637 permits the measurement of signals up to 600 kHz with inputs of 200 mV rms and up to 8 MHz when the input levels are above 1 V rms.
As with previous monolithic rms converters from Analog Devices, Inc., the AD637 has an auxiliary dB output available to users. The logarithm of the rms output signal is brought out to a separate pin, allowing direct dB measurement with a useful range of 60 dB. An externally programmed reference current allows the user to select the 0 dB reference voltage to correspond to any level between 0.1 V and 2.0 V rms.
