UltraCMOS Power Limiter Modes and Applications

Peregrine Semiconductor’s UltraCMOS® power limiters provide a monolithic alternative to discrete, PIN-diode limiters. They reduce design complexity by offering a drop-in solution with no external bias components. Peregrine’s power limiters have two operating modes—power limiting and power reflecting. They feature adjustable P1dB threshold, high linearity performance, fast response and recovery time and superior ESD protection. Application examples include test and measurement (T&M) equipment, communication radio frequency front-end c(RFFE) modules and weather radar protection.
