Could you please tell me what is maximum pulse RF input power the device can handle? In the datasheet there is only information about CW power.
HMC658LP2 is a passive attenuator that can handle pulsed RF power higher than maximum average power rating depending on the pulse period and duty cycle.
What are the pulse period, duty cycle and power requirement in your application?
Thanks for quick response. Unfortunately I can not annswer your question right now. Could you please provide me with HMC658LP2 thermal characteristics and maximum power dissipation data?
HMC658LP2 has junction to case thermal resistance of ~270 °C/W and maximum power dissipation of ~315 mW (25dBm) at +85°C operation.
