Interfacing the ADL5315 High Side Current Mirror to a Translinear Logarithmic Amplifier in a Photodiode Power Detector Application (CN0056)
TheADL5315 addresses the need for precision high-side monitoring of PIN photodiode current in fiber optic systems and is useful in many nonoptical applications as well. It is optimized for use with the Analog Devices, Inc., family of translinear logarithmic amplifiers, which take advantage of the wide input current range of the ADL5315. The circuit presented in this document and shown in Figure 1 provides high accuracy power monitoring using the ADL5315 precision wide-range, high-side current mirror and the AD8305 translinear logarithmic amplifier (log amp). This configuration is ideal for high accuracy power monitoring because the full current mirror range (3 nA to 3 mA) of the ADL5315 can be used.
