Step Recovery Diodes: MSR
Typical Performance Description The Massachusetts Bay Technologies MSR series of Step Recovery Diodes are designed for use in low and moderate power multipliers with output frequencies of up to 20 GHz. They are also useful as efficient moderate power X2X4 multipliers. MBT series of higher power step recovery diodes are normally useful in multipliers with multiplication ratios of X2 to X6 times. Diodes are available in various capacitance ranges for each of the 4 voltage ratings. These diodes represent the lowest transition time (snap time) available for each voltage rating.
This series of Step Recovery Diodes are used as harmonic generators for all orders of multiplication, X2 through X 20, for both narrow and wide bandwidths. Applications include VCO’s, up converters, comb generators and frequency synthesizers.
