Integrated High Power, Switch Limiter 


PMI Model Number PSL-13D414D2-CD-PP is a switch limiter operating in the 13.4 to 14.2 GHz frequency range.  A +10mA bias will turn the switch off while a -10 mA bias will turn the switch into the insertion loss state.  The integrated limiter will handle 20W having a 2usec pulse width.
