PIN Switch Runs 30 MHz to 3 GHz

May 21, 2015
A SPDT PIN diode switch handles CW power levels to 100 W from 30 MHz to 3 GHz.

Richardson RFPD is now supporting a single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) PIN diode switch from MACOM Technology Solutions for applications from 30 MHz to 3 GHz. The switch, model MASW-011055, is supplied in a common-anode configuration and can handle continuous-wave (CW) power levels to 100 W. Suitable for high-power pulsed and CW signals, the switch exhibits low insertion loss of 0.35 dB at  2 GHz and high isolation of 51 dB at the same test frequency. The switch is RoHS-compliant and +260°C reflow-compatible. It is ideal for use in land mobile radio and MIL-COM applications that require high CW and pulsed power operation. The switch achieves 500 ns typical switching speed and is supplied in a lead-free 5-mm HQFN 12-lead plastic package.
