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.
• Excellent broadband flatness • Low broadband SWR • High burnout protection • Environmentally rugged • Field replaceable Diode elements
Description and Applications The MA4E2508 SurMountä Anti-Parallel Diode Series are Silicon Low, Medium & High Barrier Schottky Devices fabricated with the patented Heterolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (HMIC) process. HMIC circuits consist of Silicon pedestals which form Diodes or via conductors embedded in a glass dielectric, which acts as the low dispersion, low loss, microstrip transmission medium. The combination of silicon and glass allows HMIC devices to have excellent loss and power dissipation characteristics in a low profile, reliable device. The Surmount Schottky devices are excellent choices for circuits requiring the small parasitics of a beam lead device coupled with the superior mechanical performance of a chip. The SurMount structure employs very low resistance silicon vias to connect the Schottky contacts to the metalized mounting pads on the bottom surface of the chip. These devices are reliable, repeatable, and a lower cost performance solution to conventional devices. They have lower susceptibility to electrostatic discharge than conventional beam lead Schottky Diodes. The multi-layer metalization employed in the fabrication of the Surmount Schottky junctions includes a platinum diffusion Barrier, which permits all devices to be subjected to a 16-hour non-operating stabilization bake at 300°C. The “ 0502 ” outline allows for Surface Mount placement and multi- functional polarity orientations. The MA4E2508 Family of SurMount Schottky Diodes are recommended for use in microwave circuits through Ku band frequencies for lower power applications such as mixers, sub-harmonic mixers, detectors and limiters. The HMIC construction facilitates the direct replacement of more fragile beam lead Diodes with the corresponding Surmount Diode, which can be connected to a hard or soft substrate circuit with solder.

Description The MicroMetrics MNM 200 series of Medium Barrier Schottky Diodes are metal semiconductor junction devices that have a typical short reverse recovery time. This allows their use at high microwave frequencies when the performance of the n-type may be reduced. The forward I-V of Schottky Diodes is determined by the junction metal used. For every different metal selection there is a different forward voltage characteristic or “Barrier Height”. These devices are best suited for applications through 26 GHz.
Features • Multi-Junction Chips • Low 1/F Noise • Small Junction Capacitance
Applications Medium Barrier Schottky Mixer Diodes are ideally suited for use in mixers, doublers and modulators.
