DD131: Fast Temperature-Stable Directional Detector for R22 Waveguide

DD131 is a small-housing directional detector intended for sampling pulse-modulated incident or reflected waves in high-power 2450 MHz industrial applications using R22 (WR430) rectangular waveguides.

The detector delivers well-scaled DC voltage proportional to the power of the wave propagating in one direction in the main waveguide.

Simple reversing the DD131 causes it to sample the wave propagating in the opposite direction.

The use of a tunnel diode provides the directional detector with improved temperature stability and fast pulse response.
