Abstract
Microwave limiters are key components in active electronically scanned phased arrays, as well as mechanically-scanned radar systems. In current systems there are two fabrication technologies for microwave limiters: hybrid microcircuits, and monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs). Nuvotronics proposes a third way which captures the manufacturing and response-speed advantages of a monolithic approach, while leveraging unique advantages of the PolyStrataTM platform to provide RF performance better than existing hybrid silicon PIN diode limiters. The developed limiter will be suitable for high-volume fabrication, with minimum touch labor content, reducing cost by 50% compared to existing limiters.
