PIN Diodes Handle 100 W CW RF Power

A new family of non-magnetic, metal-electrode-leadless-faced (MELF) -packaged PIN diodes features high power handling and low distortion. At 100 mA, the product family has a resistance specification at 100 MHz from 0.3 to 1.0 Ω. Its capacitance specifications are 1 MHz of 0.5 pF to 2.0 pF at 100 V. The MELF PIN diodes boast lifetime specifications from 1.0 to 8.00 µs. The PIN diodes are manufactured using a proprietary glassing process, which features full-face bonding on the device's anode and cathode to ensure full surface contact of the square ceramic package. Average lead time is 4 to 6 weeks.
