limiter diodesSemiGen, Inc. (Manchester, NH) offers limiter diodes that feature fast turn-on time, low loss, low capacitance and resistance, and easy bonding. The company’s limiter diodes can be supplied in chip form or in a choice of packages. SemiGen diodes are proprietary designs that are fabricated in the United States using qualified process partners. The SemiGen SLP7100 Series of limiter diodes is processed with a high-resistivity epi that has thin, intrinsic layers. These devices are typically in the 2 to 20 micron range of epi thickness and can be gold-doped to achieve specific performance goals. They are used in passive or active limiter designs in the 100 MHz to 30 GHz frequency ranges. Applications for these diodes include:

  • Waveguide.
  • Stripline.
  • Coax.
  • Microstrip.
