IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 10, 2013 — Pasternack Enterprises Inc. has expanded its line of Schottky diode detectors. The radio frequency (RF) devices are coaxial components that convert the input RF signal strength into proportional DC voltage at its output, also referred to as “video out.”
The positive-biased instruments offer operating frequencies ranging from 500 MHz to 26 GHz and are available with SMA connectors. They have an RF signal threshold (tangential sensitivity) of −54 to −52 dBm. Each of the 50-Ω RF detectors has an operating temperature ranging between −55 and 125 °C, ensuring reliability under extreme conditions.
The expanding line of Schottky detectors includes nine new part numbers, each with varying RF capabilities and specifications. The detectors are highly sensitive and have extremely flat response, making them suitable for RF power monitoring of remote transmitters and for use in a lab environment. The hermetically sealed devices have low video output resistance, typically around 350 Ω. Each new RF/microwave Schottky detector is REACH- and RoHS-compliant.
