A Schottky diode is a diode using the schottky barrier
generating due to the junction of the metal and the
semiconductor. Because of its low forward voltage and fast
switching operation, it is suitable for high-frequency use.
In wireless applications like radio, in order to adjust the
received power level and to transmit the target power to the
amplifier, it is necessary to detect the received power and to
feed back the detection voltage through an AGC circuit.
A Schottky diode is used in detection circuit in this case.
The principle of diode detection is rectifying the signal (AC
component) through a diode and generating voltage as DC
component. The detection makes use of the non-linear
characteristic of the Schottky diode, so a bias circuit is not
necessary.
