M/A-COM Technology Solutions MELF PIN diode series are designed for usage in switch and attenuator applications requiring high power handling and low distortion. The MELF PIN diodes incorporate a fully passivated PIN diode chip resulting in an extremely low reverse bias leakage current.
The MELF is a rectangular SMQ, package which is designed for high volume tape and reel assembly. This easy to use package design makes automatic pick and place, indexing and assembly, extremely easy. The parallel flat surfaces are suitable for most key jaw or vacuum pick-up techniques. All of the solderable surfaces are tin plated and compatible with industry standard reflow and vapor phase soldering processes.
