Skyworks Unveils Surface Mount Limiter Diode for Receiver Protection Applications

Click to visit Skyworks Solutions

April 30, 2013

CLA4608-085LF package - RF CafeSkyworks 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.
