Low Threshold Limiter Modules Protect Receivers

RFMW offers design and sales support for a fully integrated PIN limiter / Schottky diode module in a surface-mount package. The Skyworks SKY16602-632LF provides passive receiver protection in wireless or other RF systems ranging in frequency from 200 MHz to 4 GHz. Capable of handling 100 Watts of pulsed power, the SKY16602-632LF has a very low threshold of approximately 5 dBm, making it useful as a fine clean-up limiter. Insertion loss is only 0.3 dB while return loss is specified at 14 dB. Low distortion highlights this device making it applicable for use in military communication transceivers, VSAT, S-band radar, jammers, GPS and cellular infrastructure.
