Two Schottky Microwave Detectors

Zero Bias Schottky Detectors

Two new models of Zero Bias Schottky Detectors are introduced with high sensitivity and a wide operating temperature range.

The first two frequency ranges offered are 10MHz to 18GHz and 2.0 to 8.0GHz, both with sensitivity of 500mV/mW and TSS of -50dBm.

Flatness over the 10MHz-18GHz frequency band is +/-1.25dB max and VSWR for such a unit is 2.0:1.

"These detectors are designed to be an affordable method in RF signal measurement for engineers designing a wide variety of equipment and test stations," said AtlanTecRF's CEO, Geoff Burling.

Input RF connectors are SMA male while the output video connector is SMA female and the output impedance is in the range 3.0-5.0K ohms with 20pF shunt capacitance.

No bias is required and there is a choice of either positive or negative output polarity.
