Axial Leaded PIN Diode
HIPAX series of PIN diodes are designed for usage in switch and attenuator applications requiring high power handling and low distortion. These diodes incorporate a fully passivated PIN diode chip resulting in an extremely low reverse bias leakage current. The semiconductor technology utilized in the HIPAX families draws on MACOM ’s substantial experience in PIN diode design and wafer fabrication. The result is a device which has a thick I-region and long carrier lifetime while maintaining low series resistance and capacitance values. The chips used in the HIPAX PIN diodes are enclosed in a rugged ceramic package and is full face bonded to metal pins on both the anode and cathode. The result is a low loss PIN diode with low thermal resistance due to symmetrical thermal paths.
The MADP-04002B-NM402 is a non-magnetic, HIPAX (axial leaded) packaged diode well suited for MRI applications. The package leads are tin plated and compatible with industry standard reflow and vapor phase soldering processes. See Application Note M538 for a typical solder reflow profile.
HIPAX PIN diodes are designed for use in a wide variety of switch and attenuator applications from HF through UHF frequencies and at power levels above 1 kW, CW. The internal chip as well as each diode assembly has been comprehensively tested and characterized to ensure predictable and repeatable performance.
Many of MACOM’s HIPAX PIN diodes are also available as chips. Please consult the “Silicon PIN Chip Datasheet” for availability and specifications.
