M/A-COM Technology Solutions (MACOM) (Lowell, MA) has extended its strong industry position in diodes with a new family of broadband Shunt PIN Diodes for high-power switching applications. The MACOM Shunt PIN Diode series is designed for customers who need a versatile, low cost, ultra-small Shunt PIN diode element for land mobile radio, wireless infrastructure and test instrument applications. Unlike the competition, MACOM’s Typical applications include high power switching through 6 GHz with incident power up to 100 W. Features include:

  • Small, 1.5 X 1.2 mm plastic package, which reduces board space while enabling broadband performance comparable to chip-scale devices.
  • Easy implementation.
  • 3 terminal, low-pass filter structure provides low- and high signal performance compared to 2 terminal PIN diode devices, making the Shunt PIN Diodes ideal for high-power switching applications through 12 GHz with incident power up to 100W.
