Product Overview: PIN Beam Lead DiodesSource: Skyworks Solutions, Inc.
Skyworks series of silicon PIN beam-lead diodes offer excellent performance in high frequency hybrid circuit switches. These devices are configured as mesa (DSM8100-000) or planar diodes (DSG9500-000), both of which have extremely low junction capacitance, 25 pF maximum, which enables these devices to be used has high-isolation series elements in high frequency switches. Both devices offer very fast switching time and low insertion loss.
Skyworks broad product portfolio includes PIN diodes as beam-leads, in addition to packaged and bondable silicon chips, and plastic packaged surface mount devices for switch and attenuator applications.
