Beam Lead PINs Feature Fast Switching Speeds of 3 ns and Capacitances as Low as 0.02 pF

October 25, 2016

SemiGen Inc. an ISO and ITAR registered RF/microwave assembly, automated PCB manufacturing, and RF supply center, now offers a series of Beam Lead PINs, the SBL 2000.

The SBL2000 beam lead PIN diodes feature switching speeds as low as 3 ns with both low capacitance and resistance. SemiGen’s beam lead PINs are optimally designed during assembly for high levels of mechanical strength and stability with an operating temperature ranging from -55oC to +150oC. These PINs come with breakdown voltages as high as 100V, maximum junction capacitances as low as 0.02 pF, and a maximum series resistance as low as 3.0 Ω at 10mA and 2.5 Ω at 10 mA.

These diodes are suitable for microstrip or stripline circuits as well as applications requiring high isolation from a series of mounted diodes such as multi-throw switches, phase shifters, attenuators, and modulators.
