Very Low Capacitance Silicon PIN Diodes: SMP1345 Series

The SMP1345 series is composed of surface mountable PIN diodes are specifically designed for WLAN 802.11 a/b/g applications and are ideally suited for diversity switch applications. The series has an RF performance that is assured by virtue of their very low capacitance (0.15 pF) and low resistance (1.5 Ω at 10 mA).

These surface mountable PIN diodes can be applied to high volume Low-Noise Block (LNB), Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), and switch applications from 10 MHz to 6 GHz. The short carrier lifetime of 100 ns (typical), combined with their thin I-region width of 10 μm (nominal) results in a group of fast speed RF switching PIN diodes.

Key Features Include:

  • Very low insertion loss: 0.4 dB
  • Capacitance: 0.15 pF
  • Reverse voltage: 50 V maximum
  • Power dissipation @ 25 °C lead temperature: 250 mW maximum
  • Operating temperature from –65 to +150 °C
