Zero bias detectors display flat frequency response
Supplier of on-demand microwave and RF components, Fairview Microwave, has expanded their portfolio of zero bias Schottky detectors that display extremely flat frequency response over broad RF and microwave frequencies from 10MHz-26.5GHz.
Fairview’s zero bias Schottky detectors utilise compact cylindrical package outlines that are made of passivated stainless steel and offer a variety of popular input/output SMA, BNC and N Type connector configurations that make them well suited for use with precision test and measurement, instrumentation and subsystems assemblies. Numerous applications include power measurement, leveling pulsed signal sources, AM noise measurements, radar or missile guidance systems, monitoring system level performance and pulsed RF measurements.
Fairview Microwave’s line of zero bias Schottky detectors feature matched inputs for excellent VSWR, voltage sensitivity levels that range from 100-500mV/mW for small signal detection, negative video output polarity and can withstand maximum input power levels up to +20dBmCW. Operating temperature range covers 0 to 90°C and storage temperatures of -65 to 125°C.
“This selection of zero bias Schottky diode detectors covers popular frequency bands from 10 MHz to 26.5GHz with an extremely flat frequency response and no DC bias required. Available in a variety of compact package and RF connector configurations, designers will find these models useful for precision test and measurement applications and in monitoring system level performance,” explained Brian McCutcheon, Vice President and General Manager at Fairview Microwave.
