Product Overview: Silicon Schottky DiodesSource: Skyworks Solutions, Inc.
Skyworks broad product portfolio includes Schottky diodes as packaged and bondable silicon chips, in addition to ceramic hermetic, chip on board, beam-lead, flip chip and plastic surface mount packaged devices for mixer or detector applications.
Skyworks series of Silicon Schottky diodes, CDB7619-000, CDB7620-000, CDB7630-000, CDB7631-000, CDB7621-000 and CDB7623-000 are optimized for use as detector and mixer diodes at frequencies from below 100 MHz to higher than 40 GHz. This family of products includes low and "zero bias detector (ZBD)" barrier height Schottky junctions with low junction capacitance and low series resistance. Schottky junctions are formed by depositing specific metals on either n-type-doped silicon (low barrier height) or on p-type-doped silicon (low or ZBD barrier height). The characteristics of the diode are determined by the type of metal deposited on the semiconductor material as well as the type of dopant in the semiconductor layer, among other parameters
