Low Threshold Limiter Module Offers Coverage To 6GHz


Low distortion makes this device applicable military communication transceivers, VSAT, S-band radar, jammers, GPS and cellular infrastructure

Skyworks’ SKY16601-555LF is a fully integrated, PIN diode, low-threshold limiter module in a surface-mount package that addresses the need for passive protection of LNAs in microwave receiver applications. It is designed for use as a passive receiver protector in wireless or other RF systems that covers a frequency range of 0.5 to 6.0 GHz.

The SKY16601-555LF module is comprised of a PIN limiter diode, an RF choke inductor, and 2 DC blocking caps at the RF ports in a 2-lead MLP package. The small package design reduces printed circuit board area.


  • Low insertion loss (0.1 dB) and low distortion
  • Return loss is 27.5 dB
  • Capable of handling 230 W pulsed power
  • Typical threshold level is 11 dBm
  • Flat leakage power of 13 dBm at 20 dBm input
  • Temperature range of –40 ˚C to +85 ˚C

Skyworks also provides limiter diodes in a variety of packages as well as DIE form.

The module comes in a 2.5 x 2.5 mm SMT package.
