Diamond RF Resistives®

Resistors, Terminations, and Attenuators

The highest power to size ratio resistive products utilizing CVD Diamond, the best thermal conductor available. Diamond by EMC Technology brand, is the best thermal conductor on earth.

Features & Benefits

Combined with a low dielectric constant, it is an excellent RF dielectric material for high-frequency applications in which thermal performance is equally critical. By applying cutting-edge thin film process and extensive millimeter wave design experience, Smiths Interconnect has created a high-performance line of resistive components. The resulting products, our Diamond RF Resistives® resistors, terminations, and attenuators, are significantly reduced in size and unparalleled in average and peak power handling.
