Drop-In SMT Limiters Handle 2-kW Peak

Managing as much as 100W CW and 2 kW peak power to 8 GHz, the LM Series surface-mount limiters for receiver protection applications measure 8 x 5 x 2.5 cubic millimeters and reportedly provide considerably higher thermal capacity than silicon and GaAs MMIC solutions. Covering a total frequency range of 20 MHz to 8 GHz, the series includes low-power (4W CW), medium-power (30W CW), and high-power (100W CW) limiters as well as a broadband unit capable of operating from 20 MHz to 8 GHz. All models feature a flat leakage power of +20 dBm typical. Other features include low insertion losses for both low- and high-power applications. Aeroflex / Metelics, Londonderry, NH.
