M/A-COM announced the release of the MA4E2200 series of Zero Bias Detector (ZBD) silicon Schottky diodes for use in handset and RFID detector applications.

These silicon medium barrier devices are offered in the most popular JEDEC plastic packages: SOD-323, SOT-23 and SOT-143, for high volume, surface mount, solder re-flow manufacturing. They are offered as single, series tee, series tee reverse and unconnected pair device configurations.

These Schottky products are well suited for circuits requiring lower Tangential Sensitivity (TSS) values as in RF envelope detection with temperature compensation. In addition, they can be used in limiter circuits where lower flat leakage power is required (

The MA4E2200 series of ZBD Schottky products are manufactured using M/A-COM's Planar-BCB foundry process. This process produces excellent device uniformity and repeatability to maintain consistent RF circuit performance, said the company.

Pricing in 100,000-piece quantities are 17 cents for the MA4E2200A-1141T (SOD-323); 21 cents for the MA4E2200B-287T or MA4E2200D-287T (SOT-23); and 23 cents for the MA4E2200E-1068T (SOT-143). All models are available from stock.
