Advantages and disadvantages of PIN diode

PIN diode is used in a variety of different application from low to high radio frequency. PIN diode are very good for RF switching, and photo diode. So now check it out advantages and disadvantages of PIN diode to know more details about PIN diode.

Advantages of PIN diode :
  • Low noise
  • Low dark current
  • Low bias voltage
  • Higher reverse voltages to be tolerated
  • High speed response
  • Low junction capacitance 
  • Large depletion region 
Disadvantages of PIN diode :
  • Less sensitivity
  • No internal gain
  • Small area
  • Slow response time
  • High reverse recovery time due to power loss are significant
