The LM501202-M-C-300 Surface Mount Silicon PIN Diode Limiter 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 from 0.5-2.0 GHz.
Using PIN Diodes with lower thermal resistance ( < 15 ºC/W ), RF C.W. incident power levels of +45 dBm
and RF peak incident power levels of +53 dBm @ 1µS RF pulse width, 0.1% duty cycle are very achievable.
In addition, this design concept provides lower flat leakage power ( < +21 dBm ) and lower spike leakage
energy ( < 0.3 Ergs ) for superior LNA protection.
