Practical PIN Diodes

The selection of a PIN to perform a particular microwave switching function begins with the choice of the size of the I region — specifically, its thickness, W, and cross sectional area, A. In practice, however, this characterization is usually accomplished using the related variables junction capacitance, CJ, which depends upon both A and W, and bulk breakdown voltage, VBB, which is proportional to W. What are the basic considerations in making these selections?
