IRVINE, Calif. – Pasternack Enterprises in Irvine, Calif., is introducing a product line of coaxial packaged tunnel diode detectors for prototype and proof-of-concept applications in military and commercial radar, test and measurement, and satellite communications (SATCOM) applications.

Pasternack's offering includes 26 models of tunnel diode detectors that have rugged Germanium planar construction and operate over octave and broadband frequencies that range from 100 MHz to 26 GHz.

These zero-biased designs for radar, SATCOM, and test and measurement are available in positive and negative video output polarities and offer dynamic range with efficient low-level signal detection. Another added benefit is an extremely fast pulse response rise time of 5 nanoseconds typical.

These detectors have maximum input power handling of +17 dBm and exhibit a flat video output response across wide frequency bands over a maximum temperature range of -65 to 115 degrees Celsius.

All models for radar, SATCOM, and test and measurement are RoHS and REACH compliant and available in compact cylindrical packages that have an SMA male RF input connector and an SMA female video output connector.
