New Schottky Detector Diodes Eliminates the Need for External Biasing in Video Detectors and Power Monitors

SemiGen, Inc. (, an ISO and ITAR registered RF/Microwave assembly, automated PCB manufacturing, and RF Supply Center, has added a series of new Zero Bias Schottky Detector Diodes to its expanding product offerings.

SemiGen’s SZB900 series of Zero Bias Schottky Detector Diodes are catered to perform as components of video detectors and power monitors, eliminating the need for external DC biasing. This series of schottky diodes features low junction capacitances, high voltage sensitivity, uniform video resistances, and high sensitivity, all without external bias circuitry. With forward voltage drops of 0.3V and superior TSS, these diodes are ideally suited for use in waveguide, coaxial, and stripline applications through K-band. With an operating temperature from -55°C to +150°C and power dissipation of 100 mW, these diodes come in chip, glass, ceramic, and beam lead packages.
