The MASL-011023 is an innovative switch-limiter solution for customers who require the industry's fastest recovery time and highest power handling for S-Band receive protection applications. Operating over the 2.7 - 3.5 GHz bandwidth, the device handles 125W of CW power at 85°C while providing ultra fast recovery time of less than 100 nanoseconds. The switch is offered in a JEDEC standard footprint surface mount 7mm x 7mm QFN package that enables repeatable, high volume manufacturing. The MASL-011023 delivers low insertion loss, high isolation and the lowest available flat leakage of 10 dBm in Rx mode and 7 dBm in Tx mode.

This SP2T switch-limiter is designed to minimize insertion loss and handle +51 dBm CW power through the transmit path. This exceptional device also incorporates a fully integrated RF & DC bias network which provides the customer with a complete switch-limiter solution.

"The combination of highest power handling, lowest flat leakage and ultra fast recovery time make the MASL-011023 switch-limiter a unique and attractive solution for receiver protection in radar applications", said Paul Beasly, Product Manager. "Furthermore, as a result of the high volume and automated package assembly, customers will benefit from consistent performance, tight manufacturing tolerances and superior reliability for critical radar requirements."

The table below outlines typical performance:
