RF Detectors


Pasternack RF detectors are active coaxial components that convert signal

strength into proportional DC voltage at its output, also referred to as “video

out”. We offer three basic types of RF detectors which include zero bias

Schottky diode detectors, bias Schottky diode detectors and log detectors.

Pasternack radio frequency detectors are most commonly used to monitor and

measure signal strength from an RF source.


RF detectors are available with SMA connectors, while our 75 Ohm varieties have BNC connectors. Pasternack zero bias detectors, bias detectors and log detectors have varying frequency capabilities ranging from 100 KHz to 26.5 GHz depending on type and style. These RF detectors have a maximum input power rating between 10 dBm and 23 dBm and an RF signal threshold (tangential sensitivity) of -54 dBm to -20 dBm. We offer two variations of RF detectors with a positive or negative output bias. Many of our Schottky and log detectors are RoHS and REACH compliant.


The ISO 9001:2008 registered Pasternack facility ships bias and zero bias Schottky diode detectors and log detectors same day worldwide. Pasternack offers the largest inventory of RF, microwave and millimeter wave components available for same day shipment.
