    Qorvo's TGL2217-SM is a packaged high power, wideband GaAs VPIN limiter capable of protecting sensitive receive channel components against high power incident signals. The TGL2217-SM 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-SM operates from 0.1–20.0 GHz with low insertion loss of less than 0.9 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-SM is offered in a small 3.5 x 3.5 mm QFN package for simple board level assembly. Fully matched to 50 ohms on both RF ports, 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.
