Abstract:

The passive receiver protector, AGC attenuator and sensitivity time control functions of a radar are combined in a single device which performs the functions in front of the radar low noise amplifier with relatively low loss. The receiver protector utilizes semiconductor diodes which operate as a power limiter during transmit and as precision attenuators during receive. Author
