Broadband Flat Schottky Detectors

Cobham Signal & Control Solutions - Maximally Flat Schotty Detectors

These schottky diode detectors are designed for optimum output voltage flatness vs. input frequency. Excellent flatness performance is maintained up through +15dBm input power.

Many forms of detectors exhibit uneven expansion and unacceptable flatness at higher power levels. Our design minimizes this effect making the detectors more useful and accurate as broadband power monitors.

Each detector model contains:
  • DC return
  • RF bypass capacitor
  • Detector diode
Features:
  • Exceptional Temperature Stability
  • Low Video Resistance (110 typical)
  • Broadband Performance
  • No Bias Required
Applications:
  • Transmitter Monitoring
  • Missile Guidance Systems
  • Input to Low-Noise Amplifiers
  • Broadband Or Narrowband ECM Receivers
  • Power and Signal Monitors
  • Doppler Radar and Beacon Receivers
  • Matched units available for Multi-channel Receivers, Amplitude Comparator Systems and Discriminators
