PIN Diodes

Skyworks Solutions recently unveiled its SMP1302 series of silicon PIN diodes. The company's latest diodes are offered in a variety of plastic surface-mount packages and provide a capacitance of 0.3pF for use in high-volume switch and attenuator applications from 10MHz to beyond 2GHz.

The SMP1302 series comprises single, dual, and quad diodes in SOT-23, SOD-323, SC-79, SC-70, SC-88, miniature SOD-882, and ultra low-inductance (0.2nH) SOT-143 packages. A four-diode array is available in a SOT-5 package designed for insertion in commonly used four-diode PI attenuator circuits. All packages have a moisture sensitivity level 1 rating at 260°C in compliance with the JEDEC J-STD-020 standard. The diodes' small size and low profile make them suitable for cellular base stations and handsets, as well as WLAN, CATV, satellite communication, land mobile radio, and infrastructure markets.

Datasheet for the SMP1302 series PIN diode can be downloaded here.
