MADL-011088-DIE

X-Band PIN Diode Limiter 6 - 12 GHz

The MADL-011088-DIE is an integrated AlGaAs PIN Diode limiter. It is DC de-coupled at both the input and output ports and can be used with or without DC bias applied.

The limiter DC bias can be grounded to achieve low insertion loss, typically 0.35 dB up to 12 GHz. When applying a DC bias up to 0.7 V, ultra low flat leakage of less than 14 dBm across the power range can be achieved.

The MADL-011088-DIE can limit up to 39 dBm incident CW power at room temperature. It is available in die form with a compact die dimension of 1.78 x 0.98 mm.
