The LM102202-H-C-301 Surface Mount Silicon PIN Diode Limiters is manufactured using MACOM's proven hybrid manufacturing process incorporating PIN Diodes and passive devices integrated within a ceramic substrate. This low profile, compact, surface mount component, (8mm L x 5mm W x 2.5 mm H)
offers superior low and high signal performance to comparable MMIC devices in QFN packages. The Limiter
Modules are designed to optimize small signal insertion loss, (N.F.) and high signal flat leakage performance
in a compact, surface mount package.
Using PIN Diodes with lower thermal resistance (< 10 ºC/W), and a De-coupled Schottky detector network
as a current source, RF C.W. incident power levels of +47 dBm and RF peak incident power levels of
+53 dBm @ 20 µS RF pulse width, 1% duty cycle are very achievable. In addition, this design concept
provides lower flat leakage power (< + 17 dBm) and lower spike leakage energy (< 0.5 Ergs) for superior
