SOI Switches Tackle 60 GHz (.PDF Download)

Nov. 18, 2016

Fast switches are finding places in test instruments and communications equipment at higher and higher frequencies, with applications such as automotive safety systems and even backhaul links in Fifth-Generation (5G) wireless communications networks  reaching millimeter-wave frequencies. To provide those switching functions, a pair of UltraCMOS silicon-on-insulator (SOI) single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) flip-chip switch die from Peregrine Semiconductor offer electrical performance from 9 kHz to 60 GHz with 8-ns switching speed...
