The excellent heat dissipative properties of CVD diamond substrates allow high power terminations and resistors in very small packages. The CT0402D is a 10W termination packaged on a standard 0402 size diamond substrate. Operating frequencies are from DC to 8GHz. CVD diamond thermal conductivities are about 3-4 times that of copper at 1000-1800 W/m-K and far beyond Beryllia and Aluminum Nitride making them ideal for high reliability and space applications or where printed circuit space is at a premium. RFMW supports the EMC Technology diamond substrate products as well as BeO and AlN devices.
