PROTOTYPE HIGH POWER CIRCULATOR WITH SOLID STATE LIMITER
ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS INC ST PETERSBURG FL
A prototype high power Y-circulator with a solid state limiter was constructed and tested. The power handling capability of the circulator is limited by the VSWR of the antenna used in the system. Any reflection of 10 kw or more from the antenna will damage the solid state limiter connected to the receiver port. A ferroelectric limiter was designed and constructed for the purpose of replacing the limiter presently in the circulator package. The tests were made on this device were very satisfactory. Author
