Londonderry, NH-MicroMetrics low, medium, and high barrier Schottky ring quads are now available in a new package. CS-17 is a square ceramic surface mount package with an epoxy top. It measures 0.060" sq x 0.025" tall, with 4 bonding pads on the bottom. This package is ideal for high volume automated manufacturing applications and can be delivered in sleeves or in tape and reel.
MicroMetrics Schottky ring quads are manufactured using an in-house epitaxial process to ensure control over carrier concentration and thickness. In addition to closely matched junction capacitance and forward voltage, these high quality ring quads feature low junction capacitance, low series resistance, and low leakage currents. Their rugged monolithic design makes them ideal for use in double balance mixers, modulators, and doublers that get employed in applications such as cell phones and transmitters.
In addition to the new CS-17 package, MicroMetrics Schottky ring quads are also available in a variety of other ring quad packages including: CS-12-4-a unique ceramic chip option, and CS-26R-a standard 4 lead ceramic surface mount option. They are also available in wafer and die form. Price and delivery is model specific.
