X Band coaxial limiter
Teledyne uses our custom packaged PIN diode designs across our range of coaxial limiters.
The PIN diode is embodied in an air-spaced coaxial structure, providing the high levels of isolation required to protect sensitive receiver elements whilst retaining the characteristically low insertion loss.
The higher power limiter options incorporate multiple PIN diodes in each stage with passive Schottky diode bias networks to extract maximum power handling from the PIN diodes. This design approach optimises the peak operating power without compromising other performance parameters.
Additional system functions can be incorporated within the limiter offering a net SWaP-C (Size, Weight and Power - Cost) benefit over discrete components.
