MACOM's manufactures a series of silicon PIN limiter diodes with small and medium I-region lengths which are specifically designed for high signal applications. The devices are designed to provide low insertion loss, at zero bias, as well as low flat leakage power with fast signal response/recovery times. Parts are available as discrete die or assembled into a variety of surface mount or ceramic pill packages. See the Available Case Style table on page 6 for the specific ceramic package styles and their availability for individual part numbers.
The MA4L and MADL-0110 Series of PIN limiter diodes
are designed for use in passive limiter control circuits to
protect sensitive receiver components such as low noise
amplifiers (LNA), detectors, and mixers covering the
10 MHz to 18 GHz frequency range.
