MACOM (Metelics) introduces High Power Handling Limiter Modules

Aeroflex High Power Limiter

The LM Series of surface mount diode limiters are available for high power receiver protection over frequency ranges as broad as 20 MHz to 8 GHz.


Used in military and commercial applications and spanning frequencies up to 8.5GHz with power levels up to 100W CW and 1,000W pulsed, these limiter modules are ideal for octave band RADAR applications. Some models also include built-in DC blocks. Read more about the Metelics High Power Limiters

High Power Surface Mount Limiter Modules

MACOM (Metelics) introduces Low Cost SMT control diodes.

MACOM (Metelics) has your drop-in solutions for several low cost surface mount control components.

Medium and high power PIN diode SPST switch elements are excellent for test instrumentation, software defined radio, and wireless infrastructures such as TD-SCDMA, WiMAX, WiBro, WLAN, and MIMO OFDM.

High dynamic range shunt attenuator diodes are ideal for test instrumentation and wireless infrastructures such as TD-SCDMA, WiMAX, WiBro, WLAN, point-topoint radio, and FWA.

GaAs and silicon Schottky mixer/detector diodes are perfect for test instrumentation, sensors, and wireless infrastructures such as point-topoint radio and FWA.
