Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (Woburn, MA) has introduced a surface mount limiter diode for receiver protection applications. The CLA4608-085LF is a low capacitance silicon PIN limiter diode designed for high power applications ranging from 10 MHz to over 6 GHz. Features include:
- A max resistance @ 10 mA of 1.2 Ω.
- A max capacitance @ 38 V is 0.65 pF
- A thermal resistance of 50° C/W.
- A typical threshold level of +20 dBm for large signal isolation.
