Title: Diode discovery power level detection

Abstract: A method for discovering a power level in a diode discovery circuit includes transmiting a pulse signal from a diode discovery device on a first line, receiving the pulse signal in the diode discovery device on a second line, measuring a time to charge a capacitor in response to applying power to determine the power level, and applying power in response to comparing the transmitted pulse signal to the received pulse signal and to measuring the time.
