Beam Lead PINs Feature 3-ns Switching Speeds

The SBL 2000 series beam lead PIN diodes feature switching speeds as low as 3 ns with both low capacitance and resistance. Designed during assembly for high levels of mechanical strength and stability with an operating temperature ranging from -55oC to +150oC, the PINs come with breakdown voltages as high as 100V, maximum junction capacitances as low as 0.02 pF, and a maximum series resistance as low as 3.0 Ω at 10 mA and 2.5 Ω at 10 mA. The diodes are suitable for microstrip or stripline circuits as well as applications requiring high isolation from a series of mounted diodes such as multi-throw switches, phase shifters, attenuators, and modulators.

An accelerometer measures the rate of change of an object’s velocity to monitor its movement.

From cell phones to industrial manufacturing, knowing when an object (or a person!) is nearby is a basic sensing requirement.
