Application 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. Here is some application related to PIN diode to know more details about PIN diode 
  • PIN diode is used as photo detector for most fiber optic application.
  • There are used as a variable resistor in at RF and microwave frequency.
  • They are used in electric Pre - Amplifier to boost sensitivity.
  • It used as a high voltage rectifier.
  • Audio CD players, Computer CD drive, DVD players.
  • In a phase shiftier circuit considered as a lumped variable impedance microwave circuit element.
  • Nuclear radiation detector.
  • It can be also used limiter circuit and modulator.
  • PIN diode are utilized as series or shunt connected switches in a phase shifter design.
