MACOM’s MA4FCP Series consists of Silicon Flip Chip PIN
diodes fabricated with MACOM’s patented HMIC process. This
diode is fabricated on epitaxial wafers using a process
designed for repeatable electrical characteristics and
extremely low parasitics. This diode is fully passivated
with Silicon Nitride and has an additional layer of Polyimide
for scratch protection. These protective coatings prevent
damage to the junction during automated or manual handling.
This flip chip configuration is suitable for pick and place insertion.
The small 0315 outline and low 0.12 pS RC product, make the device useful for multi-throw switch and switched phase shifter circuits requiring < 40 nS switching speeds up to 18 GHz operating frequency.
