6442
Planar Triode

EIA Base & Outline

Source ........................................ GE1

Application

The 6442 is a high-mu, metal-and-ceramic triode intended for operation as a plate-pulsed, grounded-grid oscillator at frequencies as high as 5000 MHz.

The 6442 is also useful as a CW, radio-frequency power amplifier or frequency multiplier as high as 2500 MHz.

Features of the 6442 include small size, planar electrode construction with close spacing, inherent rigidity, an envelope structure convenient for coaxial circuit applications, and excellent resistance to vibration and shock.
