MACOM's MA4E1317 single, MA4E1318 antiparallel
pair, MA4E1319-1 reverse tee, MA4E1319-2 series
tee and MA4E2160 unconnected anti-parallel pair
are gallium arsenide flip chip Schottky barrier
diodes. These devices are fabricated on OMCVD
epitaxial wafers using a process designed for high
device uniformity and extremely low parasitics. The
diodes are fully passivated with silicon nitride and
have an additional layer of polyimide for scratch protection.
The protective coatings prevent damage to the
junction during automated or manual handling.
The flip chip configuration is suitable for pick
and place insertion. The high cutoff frequency
of these diodes allows use through millimeter
wave frequencies. Typical applications include
single and double balanced mixers in PCN
transceivers and radios, police radar detectors,
and automotive radar detectors. The devices
can be used through 80 GHz.
