1987.0487.281 Texas Instruments Collection Object

Radar Application Components
TI number: G00102

The X-band mixer on high P silicon and the surface-oriented switching diode were developed for the MERA module but technical problems prevented their being used in the development modules. Hybrid circuit alternates were used instead.

This item was part of the original S/B Lobby display. The X-band mixer is on the left and the switching diode on the right. The diode chip has been broken in past handling. For additional information, see "Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits: An Historical Perspective", IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON MICROWAVE THEORY AND TECHNIQUES, Vol. MTT-32, No. 9, September, 1984, in the Artifact Historical Files.
