Low Barrier Schottky Diode Detectors
Agilent offers a complete family of high performance Low Barrier Schottky Diode Detectors which cover the 10 MHz to 26.5 GHz frequency range. These general purpose components are widely used for CW and pulsed power detection, leveling of sweepers, and frequencyresponse testing of other microwave components. These detectors do not require a dc bias and can be used with common oscilloscopes, thus their simplicity of operation and excellent broadband performance make them useful measurement accessories.
These detectors use a Low-Barrier Schottky Diode (LBSD), specially fabricated with low origin resistance and low junction capacitance. This results in improved broadband flatness and SWR over point-contact diode detectors, thus yielding more accurate measurements. These detectors also offer very good ruggedness and burnout protection. As with all Agilent detectors, these models integrate the diode with the other circuit elements thus minimizing stray reactances and optimizing broadband performance. For economical field repair, replaceable detector modules are available.
