Re: 1S1, GaAs...

Stan or Patricia Griffiths <w7ni@...>

What we really need here is a genuine Tek engineering type that knows
circuit design using tunnels and GaAs diodes. I will see if I can recruit
one to join this reflector. This is way beyond a repair technician's (me)

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...?
