broadband limiting ampsPasternack Enterprises (Irvine, CA) unveiled new broadband limiting amplifiers covering a wide frequency range between 1 GHz to 18 GHz. They are used to protect sensitive microwave receivers by “limiting” excessive input power which could potentially create unwanted distortion or even damage the receiver. This new portfolio of limiting amplifiers accept a wide range of input power levels, while responding with a limited range of output powers between 15 and 19 dBm with a saturated power output deviation of ±0.5 dB over the frequency range, independent of the input. These RF amplifiers demonstrate a wide input dynamic range between -61 dBm to +20 dBm and high gain levels of 40 dB to 80 dB typical gain with gain flatness performance of ±1 dB depending on the specific model. These broadband limiting amplifiers are commonly used in:

  • Electronic warfare.
  • Microwave receivers.
  • Broadband communications systems.
