Abstract

An alternative approach for robust electromagnetic pulse (EMP) protection circuit was proposed by using a parallel coupled band-pass filter (BPF) with high thermal conductivity AlN substrate in between with a traditional gas discharge tube (GDT) and fast response metal oxide varistor (MOV). This proposed configuration can suppress slow as well as fast voltage surges. The fabricated BPF with a center frequency of 2.5 GHz on the high thermal conductive (180~200 W/m·K) AlN substrate could efficiently suppress high power over voltage surge. Through the purposed cascade protection configuration, it is observed that 6KV ESD fast introduced pulse (5 ns/50 ns) and 4 KV lightning surge pulse(1 μs/50 μs) were attenuated to 511V and 396 V, respectively, and that is capable to be applied to an EMP protection circuit in the front end of a linear amplifier applications.
