Optimized for operation in varistor mode.
ACST offers several types of Schottky diodes, optimized for operation in varistor mode at mm-waves and THz frequencies.
They differ in structure layout, number of anodes, dedicated frequency range, and mounting approach. ACST varistor diodes feature ultra-low series resistance and near-theoretical ideality factor.
These parameters make them best suited for building frequency mixers (frequency down-conversion) but are also suited for other applications like frequency multipliers, RF resistors, power detectors, etc.
