Hi everyone,

Can anyone help out with suggesting an equivalent for the MA4P7001 PIN diode?

The data sheet can be found at this location: http://www.datasheetcatalog.org/datasheet/macom/MA4P4302.pdf

Thanks in advance,
73's Elia 2E0ZHN

There is a fellow in Israel who parts out old Motorola commercial radios (Micoms, I recall) and sells the MA4P4006 which you can see in your data sheet is a 600 volt SMD part with a 6 microsecond carrier survival time instead of 3 us and capacitance of 2.2 pf instead of 0.7 pf. This is a hell-for-stout device that will easily tolerate tack soldering pigtail leads to the ends. He sells on eBay with the seller name 4z4rb which appears to be his callsign. His current listing for a lot of 10 for US $20 + $14.50 shipping is here:


Having purchased some, I can vouch for his service and the quality of these parts which may have some flux

In March 2009, M/A-COM Tech was acquired by a holding company led by
John Ocampo!
Their new web-site:

And good news are they DO list the requested diode!!!
You can even request a sampel...not sure if works though
