We are happy to announce that the RFD103A AC to DC converter module is now available for sale and a new datasheet has been posted. The 8mm x 10mm land grid array module has >50% RF-DC conversion efficiency from 10kHz…150MHz for an input power of ~32mW (15dBm) into a 10kOhm load. Additional matching components can extend this range and performance. The module can be used as a zero bias detector and above 0.1V input levels will multiply the AC signal to a DC output voltage by a factor of 7-8x for frequencies >50Hz. The module is capable of producing very high voltages into a high impedance (~73V output for a 10V 50Hz sine wave into a voltmeter and ~77V output for a 10V 50Hz square wave). Applications for this module include: Piezo-electric and AC Energy Harvesting, noncontact AC sensors, High Voltage Source for a control line to MEMs, Zero Bias Detector, EMI sensor.
