The TriQuint TGL2203 is a wideband MMIC GaAs VPIN limiter capable of protecting sensitive receive channel components against high power incident signals. The TGL2203 does not require DC bias and achieves a low insertion loss all in a small form factor. These features allow for simple integration with minimal impact to system performance.
The TGL2203 operates from 30 to 38 GHz and achieves low insertion loss of 1 dB and a return loss of >12 dB; it can limit up to 1 W incident power with a low flat leakage of 20 dBm. The TGL2203 is ideally suited to support both commercial and defense related applications.
