MILPITAS, Calif. – The Teledyne Defense Electronics Teledyne e2v HiRel segment in Milpitas, Calif., is introduced the TDLM202402 high-power signal limiter for demanding electronic warfare (EW) and radar applications.
A quasi-active S-band SMT PIN diode limiter that offers always-on high power continuous wave (CW) and peak protection, the TDLM202402 comes in an 8-by-5-millimeter packages, and uses hybrid assembly technology.
It has 50 dBm 100-Watt CW power handling capability and 60 dBm 1,000-Watt peak power from 2 to 4 GHz at a 25-microsecond pulse width at 5 percent duty cycle.
These RF and microwave parts are screened and qualified for high-reliability applications, and operate in temperatures from -65 go 125 degrees Celsius.
Thermal management features involve a proprietary design methodology that minimizes thermal resistance from the PIN Diode junction-to-base plate (RTHJ-A).
The signal limiter design employs a two-stage detector circuit which enables ultra-fast turn-on of the high-power PIN Diodes.
The TDLM202402 is designed for small signal insertion loss, permitting a low receiver noise figure while simultaneously offering a large input signal.
Other key features and specifications include 0.5 dB insertion loss; 17 dB return loss; 14 dBm flat leakage power; 0.5 ergs spike energy leakage; I/O DC blocking capacitors; and compliance to RoHS guidelines.
