RFMW  Ltd. announces design and sales support for two new broad band, high-performance switches from Peregrine Semiconductor. Targeting the test and measurement market, the PE42520 and PE42521 SPDT switches offer performance to 13GHz at a 36dBm power rating. The resulting input IP3 (IIP3) is 66dBm while IIP2 is 115 dBm. Insertion loss measures 0.7dB at 7.5GHz while isolation is >41dB. Both devices have low gate lag, a key feature for test and measurement applications. The Peregrine PE42520 supports frequencies down to 9 KHz, while the PE42521 is a fast-switching variant that operates down to 100 MHz. Both Peregrine switches are housed in 16-lead, 3x3mm QFN packages.
