MLM2060-301

MLM Series, Surface Mount High Power Limiters

The MLM2060-300 and MLM2060-301 Series of 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. The MLM2060-300 has Shunt PIN Limiter Diodes and a Shunt Coil with no D.C. Blocks, whereas the MLM2060-301 incorporates Shunt PIN Limiters Diodes, a Shunt Coil, and D.C. Blocks for versatility of design preference. Using PIN Diodes with lower thermal resistance ( < 40 ºC/W ), RF C.W. incident power levels of +36 dBm and RF peak incident power levels of + 50 dBm @ 1 µS RF pulse width, 0.001 duty cycle are very achievable in broadband Limiter Applications. The lower PIN Diode series resistance, ( < 1.5 O ), coupled with the smaller minority carrier lifetime, ( < 20 ?S ), provides lower flat leakage power ( < + 20 dBm ) and lower spike leakage energy ( < 0.1 Ergs ) for superior LNA protection
