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.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
