Skyworks introduces three surface mount limiter diodes for receiver protection applications. The surface mountable, low capacitance silicon PIN limiter diodes are designed as shunt connected PIN diodes for high power limiter functions ranging from 10 MHz to over 6 GHz.
These general market limiter diodes deliver low loss, very low series inductance, low capacitance and can handle high power with low thermal resistance (40°C/W). Target markets include infrastructure, military and consumer.
For example, the CLA4603-085LF specs include:
- Maximum resistance at 10 mA is 2 O
- Maximum capacitance at 6 V is 0.4 pF
- Threshold level is +9 dBm, nominal
