MACOM launches 200W cw power-handling L-band SMT limiter

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes analog semiconductors, components and subassemblies for analog, RF, microwave and millimeter-wave applications) has launched a 200W cw (continuous-wave) power L-band limiter with what is reckoned to be four times the power handling of its nearest competitor.

The MADL-011014 is a high-power limiter that is suited to the most demanding applications requiring high peak and cw power receive protection in air-traffic management and radar systems. The passive, fully matched limiter operates over the 1-2GHz bandwidth and integrates the equivalent of 19 discrete diode and passive components into a single packaged solution. The device features 200W cw power handling and up to a 1000W of peak power handling under 300μs and 10% duty-cycle pulse conditions.

The MADL-011014 has 0.35dB insertion loss, 19dB return loss, 53dBm CW incident power ,and 19dBm flat leakage power at +55dBm and is offered in a low-RGA fully hermetic package with a compact 10.1mm x 6.2mm x 3.2mm outline.

“The high power limiter is designed to provide a complete solution for the most demanding applications in the smallest possible size,” says product manager Paul Beasly. “The MADL-011014 provides industry-leading power and small-signal performance in a SMT package which allows our customers to complete designs more rapidly, exceed system requirements, and protect critical systems with superior reliability under the harshest environmental conditions,” he claims.

Samples of the MADL-011014 are available from stock.
