1S1, GaAs...

Michael Dunn <mdunn@...>
 

Well, I finally got the manual for my 1S1 1GHz sampling plug-in. It's filled with exotic diodes. About 5 tunnel diodes of varying type and package. And, nine(!) GaAs (Gallium Arsenide) diodes (5 types!)!!! I had originally thought these were tunnels also, and no, they don't emit light ;-) I've never even heard of such things before - think they were actually made by Tek. Anyway, 6 of them are missing, and I'm thinking that some low-power Schottky diodes might be workable subs. Can anyone comment on this...?

thx
