Highly linear SP3T RF switch

26 November 2008 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Tyco Electronics has released the MASW-008955, a new DC – 3,5 GHz SP3T (single-pole triple-throw) RoHS compliant switch for applications that require high linearity, low insertion loss, and fast settling time over a wide frequency range in a very small package size. Typical applications include filter and antenna switching in WLAN or Bluetooth systems that connect separate receive functions to a common antenna.

The device is fabricated on a low-cost 0,5 micron gate-length GaAs process with full passivation added for robust reliability, which is achieved in a miniature 2 mm 8-lead PDFN package. Each switch is 100% RF tested to ensure performance compliance.
