The MSD700 Step recovery diode are designed with epitaxial silicon which provides high output power and efficiency in harmonic generator applications. It is manufactured using proven diode fabrication process for high reproducibility. A unique silicon dioxide passivation process assures greater stability reliability and low leakage currents at high temperatures. This diode is available in chip form, and in ceramic surface mount package with epoxy encapsulation (CS19-1). The low junction capacitance (0.2 pF typical) of the MSD700 enables the device to be used in higher order multipliers and comb generator. This rugged device is capable of reliable operation in all military, commercial and industrial applications. The device is RoHS compliant.
