RF Meter click is a radio frequency power measurement device covering a frequency span from 1 MHz to 8 GHz over a 60 dB range (approximately). It enables monitoring and measuring frequency levels to ensure proper functioning and leak detection. An external antenna acquires the signal, which is then processed by the AD8318 logarithmic detector. The resulting voltage is fed into an MCP3201 ADC. For communicating with the target board MCU, the mikroBUS SPI interface is used (CS, SCK, MISO pins), with additional TEMP OUT pin.
Radio frequency meters are usually used for testing equipment that includes RF transmitters or relays. It enables monitoring and measuring frequency levels to ensure proper functioning and leak detection

Introduction In telecommunications, particularly in radio, signal strength refers to the magnitude of the electric field at a reference point that is at a significant distance from the transmitting antenna. It may also be referred to as received signal level or field strength.
