The SMP1307 series of plastic packaged, surface mountable, low capacitance (0.3 pF) silicon PIN diodes are designed for use in attenuator applications from 5 MHz to beyond 2 GHz. The thick 175 µm I region of these PIN diodes makes them very attractive for use in very low distortion PI and TEE attenuators commonly used in TV distribution applications. The 1.5 µS typical carrier lifetime of these diodes results in resistance of 100 Ohm maximum at 1 mA and 10 Ohm maximum at 10 mA. Available in a selection of plastic packages, as a single diode in the small footprint SOD-323, and in a variety of configurations in the SOT-23. Also available in a SOT-5 (SMP1307-027) package as a four diode array designed for insertion in the commonly used 4 diode PI attenuator circuit.
