The MACOM Shunt PIN Diode series is designed for customers who need a versatile, low cost, ultra-small Shunt PIN diode element for land mobile radio, wireless infrastructure and test instrument applications. Unlike the competition, MACOM's small, 1.5 X 1.2 mm plastic package reduces board space while enabling broadband performance comparable to chip-scale devices. Typical applications include high-power switching through 6GHz with incident power up to 100W. Boasting excellent performance, low cost and easy implementation, the Shunt PIN Diode series offers a winning combination for customers looking for high-power diode solutions.

"This family of Shunt PIN Diodes offers an excellent combination of broadband performance, ease of use and low cost," said Paul Wade, Product Manager. "These devices are ideal for customers looking for cost and space savings to implement into their solutions."

The 3 terminal, low-pass filter structure inherent in MACOM's devices provides superior low- and high signal performance compared to 2 terminal PIN diode devices, making the Shunt PIN Diodes ideal for high-power switching applications through 12 GHz with incident power up to 100W.
