SemiGen offers PIN diodes that feature low capacitance and resistance, high reliability, and easy bonding with F.A.C. mesas. SemiGen's new RF Supply Center provides high-quality PIN diodes that can be shipped or ordered for kits on the SemiGen floor. SemiGen diodes are proprietary, high-quality designs that are fabricated in the United States using a qualified foundry partner.
The SemiGen SGP7000 series of PIN diodes are processed with a high-resistivity epi that has intrinsic layers, which range in thickness from 4 micron to 200 micron depending on performance specifications. These devices are typically manufactured with either a robust thermal-oxide passivation or ceramic glass for durable high-power applications. These diodes are made with a grown junction P++ layer that yields abrupt junction structures that provide low punch through voltages and minimize autodoping. They are available as chips or in your choice of packages.
The series includes high-voltage, medium-power/general-purpose, high-power switching and attenuation, ultra-fast switching, and fast-switching/low-power products. Ideal applications are low- to high-power switch, attenuator, duplexer and phase-shifting applications from 2 to 20 GHz.
