In the case of director-type antennas, the radiation is stronger in the +x direction ([PHI] = 0[degrees]) under forward bias conditions, while such a pattern symmetrically changes under reverse bias conditions, radiating stronger in the -x direction ([PHI] = 90[degrees]).

All the plots have shown good agreement between simulated and measured results, which proves the validity and accuracy of the temperature dependent PIN diode model under forward bias condition.
The coupling slot is designed such that the slot works when the diodes are forward bias and connect points 'a' and 'b' with low impedance.
When an interrogator illuminates the test surface at a microwave frequency, the backscattered energy from the surface can be made to depend on the active state of the diodes on the PCB as decided by the binary input (a forward bias or a reverse bias) imposed by an erasable programmable read-only memory (EPROM) encoder.
Furthermore, these devices feature an extended forward bias safe operating area (FBSOA), allowing for a "wider operating window" as dictated by the power limitations of the device, resulting in improved ruggedness and reliability.
Most PIN diode attenuators control the attenuation characteristics through the forward bias current.
Additional features include an extended forward bias safe operating area (FBSOA), fast switching performance and excellent avalanche capabilities.
