  VDI fabricates a broad range of GaAs Schottky diodes for applications in the frequency range spanning from about 100 GHz to over 2 THz. This product line includes planar varistor and varactor diodes for mixers, frequency multipliers and direct detectors. These diodes are primarily used in VDI’s component and systems products. However, standard diode designs are also available for direct sale. VDI’s diodes are also available for the production of Space Qualified components.
