Rugged Tunnel Diode Detectors

Featured Product from Pasternack


Pasternack's comprehensive offering includes 26 models of tunnel diode detectors that feature rugged Germanium planar construction and operate over octave and broadband frequencies that range from 100 MHz to 26 GHz. These zero biased designs are available in both positive and negative video output polarities and offer excellent dynamic range with very efficient low-level signal detection. Another added benefit is an extremely fast pulse response risetime of 5 nsec typical.

These detectors have maximum input power handling of +17 dBm and exhibit a flat video output response across wide frequency bands over a maximum temperature range of -65°C to +115°C. All models are RoHS and REACH compliant and available in compact cylindrical packages that feature an SMA male RF input connector and an SMA female video output connector.
