MACOM's MA4FCP200 is a silicon flip chip PIN diode fabricated
using a patented HMIC process which provides for repeatable
electrical characteristics. This diode is fabricated on epitaxial wafers using a process designed for extremely low parasitics. The
diode is fully passivated with silicon nitride to minimize leakage current. The chip also has an additional polymer layer for impact
and scratch protection to prevent damage to the active area during handling.
The small outline and low 0.05pS RC product, make the device useful in multi-throw switches and switched phase shifter circuits requiring <20nS switching speeds at operating frequencies up to 18GHz.
