The MA4P7418-10720T is a surface mount PIN diode in a Metal Electrode Leadless Faced (MELF) package. The device incorporates MACOM's time proven HIPAX technology to produce a low inductance ceramic package with no ribbons or whisker wires. Incorporated in the package is a fully passivated PIN diode chip that is full face bonded on both the cathode and anode to maximize the surface contact area for low electrical and thermal resistance. The MA4P7418-10720T has been comprehensively characterized both electrically and mechanically to ensure repeatable and predictable performance. The diode is well suited for use in low loss, low distortion, high power switching circuits. The low thermal resistance of this device provides excellent high average performance at RF power incident levels up to 200 watts CW. This device is designed to meet the most rigorous electrical and mechanical requirements.
