hmc-c071New Non-Reflective SP4T Module Delivers High Isolation & Low Insertion Loss from DC to 20 GHz. High Linearity Switch for Demanding Test & Measurement, Fiber Optics, Military & Space Applications.

Hittite Microwave Corp., the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets, has introduced a new GaAs pHEMT MMIC SP4T switch module which is ideal for use in microwave radio, VSAT, military & space, fiber optic and broadband test applications from DC to 20 GHz.

The HMC-C071 is a general purpose, broadband, non-reflective GaAs pHEMT SP4T switch which is rated for operation from DC to 20 GHz. This broadband operation combined with high isolation of better than 32 dB up to 20 GHz, and low insertion loss of 3.5 dB up to 20 GHz, makes the HMC-C071 ideal for a wide range of applications spanning microwave radio, VSAT, radar, telecom and test instrumentation. The HMC-C071 also features very fast rise and fall time specifications of 17 ns. High P1dB and input IP3 performance of +24 dBm and +40 dBm respectively from 0.5 GHz to 20 GHz, also make the HMC-C071 ideal for applications requiring high linearity. A CMOS interface allows the HMC-C071 to operate with control voltages of 0 and +5V from a single +5V supply, while drawing only 1.4 mA.

The HMC-C071 is specified for -55C to +85C temperature operation and housed in a miniature hermetic module with field replaceable SMA connectors.

The HMC-C071 complements Hittite's broad line of SPST, SPDT and SPNT switch products which are available in die, SMT and connectorized module formats, with frequency coverage from DC to 86 GHz.

All connectorized module products are available from stock and can be ordered via the company’s e-commerce site or via direct purchase order.
