Advanced Control Components limiters will handle from 1W CW to 100CW. They are available in coaxial or stripline modules and are passive, broadband devices designed for receiver protection and power leveling applications. Special limiter diodes are integrated in 50 ohm transmission line structures. The housings are hermetically sealed and internal metallurgical bonds are used to provide the reliability required by the most severe environments.

System applications include protection of transistor amplifiers, parametric amplifiers, mixers and detectors in ECM, communications, telemetry, and radar systems.

Advanced Control Components offers application-specific solutions such as custom designed limiters and integrated limiter assemblies for special needs. Contact the factory to discuss your design and application.

Advanced Control Components offers many types of custom PIN diode limiter and limiter-based assemblies. All models and types can be optimized for narrow or broadband frequency ranges up to 40 GHz. We have extensive design resources to help develop and realize a new design, build to an existing specification, or replace an obsolete component. All designs are available with hermetic seal and hi-rel screening for military and space-based applications. From commercial to space-qualified applications, we can help.

With our extensive expertise, we can integrate limiters into a wide variety of components and functions such as amplifiers, attenuators, switches, combiners/dividers, detectors, etc. Additional capabilities include microprocessor control and monitoring, RF signal monitoring, and power supply conditioning. Contact the factory or local sales representative to discuss your design and application.
