    Qorvo's TGL2217 is a high power, wideband GaAs VPIN limiter capable of protecting sensitive receive channel components against high power incident signals. The TGL2217 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 TGL2217 operates from 0.1–20 GHz with low insertion loss of less than 0.7 dB. Receive protection is rated up to 10 W incident pulsed-power with a low flat leakage of less than 18.5 dBm.

    The TGL2217 is offered in die form. It is well suited for both commercial and defense related applications.

    Lead-free and RoHS compliant.

    Evaluation boards available on request.

    X-Microwave Design System

    This product is available as an X-Microwave Block (X-MWblock) for evaluation.

    X-MWblocks are RF and microwave "drop-in" components that can be used individually for prototyping or in production assemblies. X-MWblocks are easy to test, integrate, align, and configure to 60 GHz and beyond. No messy sweat soldering or silver epoxy processes are required. X-MWblocks are highly characterized with S-parameter models and connect with a patented solder-less interconnect technology.
