PIN Diode Limiter for Radar, Military, GPS, and Automotive
Skyworks Solutions (Woburn, MA) unveiled an integrated, single-stage, low-cost PIN diode limiter module to address the growing need for full receiver low-noise amplifier protection in microwave applications. The new limiter is a low threshold/insertion loss/distortion module in a surface-mount package meant for use as a passive receiver protector in wireless or other RF systems for frequencies up to 6 GHz. The SKY16601-555LF is ideal for military communication transceivers, VSAT, S-band radar, jammers, GPS, test instruments, and automotive markets. It is also applicable for broad market wireless systems including cellular infrastructure base station, WLAN, repeaters, and wireless backhaul OEMs. The module is comprised of:
- A PIN limiter diode.
- An RF choke inductor.
- Two DC blocking caps at the RF ports in a two-lead MLP package.
