The RFLM-802123QC-291 from RFuW Engineering is an X-Band High-Power Quasi-Active Limiter that operates from 8.7 to 10.7 GHz. It has an insertion loss of less than 1 dB, a flat leakage of less than 20 dBm, spike leakage of 0.5 erg and a recovery time of less than 3 ns. The limiter can handle up to +49 dBm of CW incident power and 53 dBm of peak input power. It offers “Always On” High Power CW and Peak protection in the X-Band.
This RoHS-compliant limiter is designed for optimal small-signal insertion loss, permitting extremely low receiver noise figure, and is based on proven hybrid assembly techniques utilized extensively in high reliability, mission-critical applications for several decades. It is available as a surface mount package that measures 9 x 6 x 2.5 mm with excellent thermal characteristics.
