Teledyne Lincoln Microwave designs our own
proprietary microwave diodes, which underpin many of our performance advantages.
Our Semiconductor Technology Centre is located at the School of Physics and Astronomy within the University of Nottingham, UK. Facilities include a 90m2 ISO class 6 process cleanroom with ISO class 5 laminar flow.
Analytical capability available to Teledyne Lincoln Microwave includes:
The Semiconductor Technology Centre specializes in development and manufacture of
Gunn Diodes and
- Teledyne Lincoln Microwave
Schottky diodes have high switching speeds and high-frequency capabilities, which make them well-equipped for use in radio frequency applications including power detector and mixer circuits. The Gunn diode is a unique component. Even though it is called a diode, it does not contain a positive–negative diode junction.
Gunn diode can be termed a diode because it has two electrodes. It depends upon the bulk material properties rather than that of a positive–negative junction. The Gunn diode operation depends on the fact that it has a voltage-controlled negative resistance.
The end uses of our diodes include: Millimeter-Wave Radar and EMC testing, Vehicle speed measurement and Traffic monitoring, THz imaging and Radio-astronomy.
