Skyworks Solutions Inc. has introduced a surface mount limiter diode for receiver protection applications. The CLA4608-085LF is a low capacitance silicon PIN limiter diode designed for high power applications ranging from 10 MHz to over 6 GHz. Maximum resistance at 10 mA is 1.2 Ω and maximum capacitance at 38 V is 0.65 pF.
Given its low thermal resistance (50° C/W) and capacitance, the new shunt connected diode is best suited for infrastructure, land mobile radios, jammers and radar in the military and consumer markets. In addition, this limiter diode has a typical threshold level of +20 dBm for large signal isolation.
Samples are available, and pricing depends on quantities.
