Wideband SP4T switches support 67 GHz applications

28 February 2022 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

pSemi has expanded its RF SOI portfolio with what it claims are the industry’s first SP4T switches for wideband and high-frequency applications up to 67 GHz. Designed to enhance 5G millimetre-wave (mmWave) systems and short-range connectivity, the compact and energy-efficient switches offer cutting-edge insertion loss, linearity, switching time and power handling at FR2 frequencies.

With these additions, the company now offers a family of mmWave SPDT (single-pole double-throw) and SP4T (single-pole 4-throw) switches to help designers simplify layouts and improve overall system efficiency in test and measurement, wireless infrastructure, satellite and point-to-point communication applications.

Three UltraCMOS switches deliver RF performance, reliability and size in multiple product configurations to meet challenging mmWave system designs from 9 kHz to 67 GHz. Available in flip-chip die form, the PE42545 SP4T supports up to 67 GHz and the PE42525 SPDT supports up to 60 GHz. Available in a small 3 x 3 mm LGA package, the PE42546 SP4T supports up to 45 GHz.
