Suitable for land, sea, and air applications in commercial, industrial, and military systems, a new pair of PIN diode switches can handle as much as 200 W CW incident power from 50 MHz to 1 GHz with low loss and high isolation. Models MASW-011040 and MASW-011041 are single-pole, four-throw (SP4T) and single-pole, three-throw (SP3T) switches supplied in surface-mount housings. They can be used for either pulsed or CW signals, and both switches exhibit less than 0.5-dB insertion loss and more than 40-dB isolation between ports across their full frequency ranges. Harmonics are controlled to better than -70 dBc. The switches are manufactured in the firm’s proven hybrid manufacturing process and housed in 9-mm HQFN 20-lead plastic packages.
