The TriQuint TGL2205-SM is a high power, wideband GaAs VPIN limiter capable of protecting sensitive receive channel components against high power incident signals. The TGL2205-SM 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 TGL2205-SM operates from 2 to 6 GHz with low insertion loss of less than 0.6 dB. It can limit up to 100 W incident pulsed-power with a low flat leakage of less than 16.5 dBm. The TGL2205-SM die has a protective surface passivation layer that provides enhanced environmental robustness. It is well suited for both commercial and defense related applications.
