M/A COM develops solder-able flip-Chip GaAs Schottky diodes

The gallium arsenide based diodes are suited to high frequency sensor applications
M/A-COM Technology (MACOM) has announced a new broadband Flip Chip Schottky Diode for multi-market applications.

The MADS-001317-1500 is designed for customers who need a versatile, low cost, ultra-small Schottky solution for Police Radar, Point to Point, Electronic Warfare and Aerospace and Defence applications.

The MADS-001317-1500 is a package-less Schottky device with contacts that allow for standard solder reflow manufacturing processes. The high cutoff frequency of this diode allows customers to use the device through millimeter wave frequencies.

The MADS-001317-1500 boasts excellent performance making it an ideal solution for single and double balanced mixers in PCN transceivers and radios, police radar detectors, and automotive radar detectors.

The table below outlines typical performance of the GaAs based device.

The MADS-001317-1500 is fabricated using a GaAs process which features full passivation for increased performance and reliability.

The low parasitic capacitance and inductance allow for operation up to 80 GHz,” says Paul Wade, Product Manager. “Due to wafer scale reduction, the device minimises unwanted parasitic and allows for exceptional performance beyond 80 GHz.

Production quantities and samples of MADS-001317-1500 are available from stock.
