Detector Logarithmic Video Amplifiers (DLVAs) are broadband microwave receivers used in the electronic warfare systems of many military platforms. Multiple DLVAs formed with an omni-directional antenna array give an instantaneous bearing indication of radar emitters (threat radars). DSP Ltd supply patented DLVAs of outstanding power/speed performance and in various configurations to meet customers’ specific requirements.

DSP Ltd are currently supplying DLVAs to the Eurofighter program.

The kernel of the 1000 series DLVA is a proprietary DSP designed ASIC Logarithmic Video Amplifier (LVA) providing >100dBV of dynamic range at very high speed with low power. A complete 1000 series DLVA dissipation can be as low as 0.6W. The system is a patented design using an built-in calibration processor to ensure highly accurate performance over a wide operating temperature range, typically ±0.4 dB accuracy over -55°C to +95°C together with a full scale risetime of < 20nS. The ASIC also allows a DLVA to be housed in a small enclosure of ≈ 1.2 cu in. (≈ 20 cu cm).
