Limiting amplifiers are very useful in applications where a constant output level is needed while having a variable input signal. These amplifiers are very useful for the system integrator who needs a steady level output and to protect all subsequent components from saturation or overdrive damage. These amplifiers, along with AmpliTech’s ultra low noise characteristics, make a perfect match to produce a clear, consistent, amplified signal. This amplifier has become a very popular solution in DLVA’s, SDLVA’s and IFM systems (2nd harmonic suppression), receivers and simulators because AmpliTech provide a clean, low-error response across the entire 2-18 GHz frequency range. The unique construction of these amplifiers yields low phase noise characteristics which is a very important requirement for systems integration.
