Product Details

The HMC-VVD104 is a monolithic GaAs PIN diode based Voltage Variable Attenuator (VVA) which exhibits low insertion loss, high IP3, and wide dynamic range. The balanced topology delivers excellent return loss while the single control voltage can be applied to either side of the die.

All bond pads and the die backside are Ti/Au metallized, and the PIN diode devices are fully passivated for reliable operation. This wideband VVA MMIC is compatible with conventional die attach methods, as well as thermocompression and thermosonic wirebonding, making it ideal for MCM and hybrid microcircuit applications. All data shown herein is measured with the chip in a 50 Ohm environment and contacted with RF probes.
