M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. has introduced a 120 Watt PIN Diode single pole double throw (SPDT) switch MASW-000936 for network applications and military communications. The manufacturer states the T/R switch offers high isolation of 50 dB @ 2.7 GHz, low insertion loss, and high transmit (Tx) RF input power handling of 120W at 85°C.
Packaged in a surface mount 4mm 16-Lead power quad flat pack no-lead (PQFN), this SPDT PIN diode T/R switch is designed for applications requiring small footprint operating between 0.05 - 6.0 GHz, including long term evolution (LTE) and worldwide interoperability for microwave access (WiMAX) base stations, radar, land mobile, and two-way radios. Key specifications include: 0.2dB insertion loss (ANT-Tx), 50dB isolation (ANT-Rx @ 2.7), and 72dBm input return loss (Rx/Tx).
Production quantities and samples of MASW-000936 are available from stock.
