Skyworks Unveils Surface Mount Limiter Diodes
for Receiver Protection Applications
March 30, 2012 Press Release
introduces three new surface mount limiter diodes for receiver protection applications. The surface mountable,
low capacitance silicon PIN limiter diodes are designed as shunt connected PIN diodes for high power limiter
functions ranging from 10 MHz to over 6 GHz. These general market limiter diodes deliver low loss, very low
series inductance, low capacitance and can handle high power with low thermal resistance (40°C/W). Target markets
include infrastructure, military and consumer.
