Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a 20 W SPDT switch from MACOM Technology Solutions Inc.
The MASW-011071 is a terminated silicon PIN diode SPDT switch designed for X-band high-power, high-performance applications. The switch is assembled in a lead-free 7 mm, 44-lead PQFN plastic package and handles greater than 20 W of continuous wave (CW) power at +70 ºC over the 8.0–10.5 GHz frequency band.
The device is fabricated using MACOM’s patented HMIC process, which allows for the integration of silicon pedestals that embed series and shunt diodes in low-loss, low-dispersion glass. The new switch offers 1 dB insertion loss and 38 dB isolation performance, and it integrates a bias network to allow for simplified bias application and switch control.
