AD8307 USB 0-500MHz RF Power Meter
Measurement of transmitter output RF power has never been easier and more precise. AD8307 USB 0-500MHz RF Power Meter allows to measure the power of transmitters from 1nW to 2W / 50W with 40dB attenuator. Output is displayed in dBm, Watts (nW, uW, mW and W range) as well as input voltage. USB RF Power Meter is based on popular AD8307 watt meter IC and PIC18F2550 microcontroller. Instead of using LCD display module the meter connects to a PC via USB port and displays measurements on a computer via USB RF Power Meter software. The software settings can be changed to use 10-50dBm attenuator and thus allowing to measure RF power higher than 2W.
AD8307 RF Power Meter Probe
AD8307 RF Power Meter Probe is used to measure the strength of RF power and may be mounted in a small metal enclosure. To measure output RF power of transmitter connect AD8307 probe input directly to the output of your transmitter (antenna output). AD8307 probe should be connected to USB IO Board by using three wire cable. The three wires provide power for the probe that is drawn from USB port through USB IO Board, ground wire and output that connects to PIC18F2550’s PIN2 (A0).
USB IO Board
USB IO Board is used to sample voltage from AD8307 chip and pass the information in a digital format to a PC via USB port. The board consists of very few components; mainly PIC18F2550 microcontroller, standard USB Type B connector, breadboard compatibille PCB, 20MHz crystal resonator, two capacitors and two resistors.
