For low-level signals, this sensor circuit works well, generally requiring averaging and a chopper-stabilized amplifier to detect the very small signals corresponding to -70-dBm power levels.
Compared to other CMOS-based chopper-stabilized amplifiers, the MultiPath amplifier integrated into our new ADC products offers 1/10th the integrated noise level for the 0.
