Few subjects cause more problems and confusion for users of microwave diodes than he effects of the diode package. Although they are required for most applications, packages always limit the perfor-mance of the circuit design, sometimes in unexpected ways. This paper will discuss the different types of pack-ages available, the attributes of each and the effects one might expect when used in some common circuit applications.
