Channel Activity Detection (CAD) sensitivity


Assuming using recommended CAD parameters from Application Note AN1200.48 (CAD performance evaluation), what is CAD sensitivity compared to normal RX mode sensitivity?

I wanted to use CAD with switchover to RX to detect preamble and receive packet if detected. Will such usage degrade overall sensitivity, or it’s the same reception mechanism inside?

Thanks for help!

I tested for this some time back on the SX1276, there CAD detect was loosing around 4-5dBm of sensitivity.

Maybe they improved on that for the SX126X ?
