M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc., a leading supplier of high-performance analog RF, microwave, millimeter wave and photonic semiconductor products,introduced the MASW-011055, a high power PIN diode SP2T switch with industry leading linearity in common anode configuration, operating over the 0.03 to 3 GHz frequency range.

This switch is ideally suited for high power military and civilian radio applications requiring higher CW and pulsed power operation for land mobile radio applications.

MACOM enables the connections that ensure high data-density network performance form L-Band to Ka-Band. Our analog RF, microwave and millimeter wave innovations optimize wireless bandwidth for clear, uninterrupted signals across even remote locations. The MASW-011055 is capable of handling 100 W CW incident power at a base plate temperature of 85°C. Covering 30 MHz to 3 GHz, the device delivers 51 dB isolation at 2 GHz with insertion loss of 0.35 dB at 2 GHz, providing an ideal high-performing solution for high-performance applications.

The MASW-011055 is manufactured using MACOM’s hybrid manufacturing process, featuring high voltage PIN diodes and passive devices integrated in a 5 mm HQF 12-lead package. It is RoHS Compliant and 260°C reflow compatible.

“The MASW-011055 is the optimal solution for customers in need of switches with high linearity, strong broadband performance and low loss,” said Paul Wade, product manager. “These switch devices incorporate high levels of integration in a small 5 x 5 mm HQFN plastic package, which provides real estate constrained users over 80 percent of space savings and significant reduction in BOM content.”
