LOWELL, MAM/A-COM has announced two RoHS compliant switches that are optimized for applications that require high power handling, low insertion loss, and high isolation, such as WiMAX or MESH applications.
The MASW-007587 double-pole, double-throw switch (DPDT) is designed to operate from DC to 4.0 GHz with output power at 1-dB compression (P1dB) of +40 dBm, typical insertion loss of 1.0 dB, and isolation of 30 dB. Typical applications include two antenna solutions requiring diversity switching in linear systems that connect the receiver and transmitter to both antennas.
The MASW-007588 single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) switch is designed to operate from DC to 6.0 GHz with P1dB of +40 dBm, typical insertion loss of 0.7 dB, and isolation of 29 dB. Typical applications include single antenna for transmit/receive switching in linear systems.
Fabricated on a 0.5-micron gate-length GaAs process with full passivation, both switches are housed in surface mount 3x3 mm PQFN packaging. The MASW-007587 is available from stock and is priced at $2.25 for quantities of 10K. The MASW-007588 is available from stock and is priced at $0.67 for quantities of 10K.
