The IC output RF impedance is typically a few hundred ohms, and the load has a high impedance of a few tens of kilohms. The voltage gain ([G.sub.v]) of the IC demodulator is specified by the IC manufacturer for certain load conditions.
With the load in the tens of kilohms, the voltage of the Arb output must be adjusted accordingly for the desired voltage.
