IRVINE, Calif. – Pasternack Enterprises in Irvine, Calif., is introducing broadband, high power coaxial limiters for electronic warfare (EW), military communications, instrumentation, fiber optic communications, SATCOM, radar, point-to-point wireless, telecommunications, and research.

The coaxial limiters are designed to help protect sensitive components in the receive chain and other microwave circuits in close proximity to high power signals.

Pasternack's high-power RF coaxial limiters now consists of 13 models that provide low leakage power to sensitive control components in the receiver chain while offering good suppression of even-order harmonics under hard limiting.

These RF limiters operate over frequencies from 0.2 GHz to 40 GHz and provide low leakage power circuit protection of 10 to 18 dBm. Additionally, they exhibit high continuous-wave power handling to 200 Watts peak power and a fast recovery time of 10 to 100 nanoseconds.

The 50-Ohm designs use high-reliability assembly processes, incorporate limiting diode circuitry, and do not require any external matching components. The compact package outlines support field replaceable connectors and thru mounting holes and can be drop mounted onto a circuit board.

These rugged modules are guaranteed to operate in temperatures from -54 to 85 degrees Celsius, and are designed to MIL-STD-202 environmental conditions for shock, humidity, vibration, altitude, and temperature cycle.
