Noise Diode
The model ST-1 small, low cost noise diode is utilized in a dithering circuit required for many high speed analog-to-digital converters. The surface-mount ST-1 has good unit-to-unit consistency and enables designers of commercial communications products to make use of noise to enhance receiver sensitivity, a luxury traditionally afforded only by military radar or other high cost receivers.
