Dow-Key Microwave’s new Reliant SwitchTM is a 1x6 bidirectional coaxial switch with an operating frequency from DC to 26. 5 GHz, which covers the typical 6 GHz test range and beyond for high-speed testing. This switch is designed with a high isolation of 100 dB (up to 4 GHz) to maintain RF consistency between port-to-port testing. Moreover, the switch can sustain a guaranteed insertion loss repeatability of 0.03 dB across the entire frequency band. This coaxial switch has an extended life cycle where each position can switch a minimum of 5-Million cycles - a 5X improvement from a typical multi-position switch.
This programmed power switch features input current limits of 150mA-2400mA and has a +10% current accuracy at 2A input with its current limit setting. Its Vcc range runs from 2.5V to 5.5V, and its operating temperature range runs from -40 to 85oC.
API Technologies Switched Filter Bank designs draw from a multi-disciplined staff with many years of experience in both microwave filters and control components. By combining filter and switch design expertise, API can provide integrated switched filter assemblies that not only reduce the overall mechanical footprint, but also offer improved electrical performance.
Skyworks is pleased to unveil five LTE Tx/Rx switches for smartphones and tablets. The SKY13414-485LF, SKY13415-485LF, SKY13416-485LF, SKY13417-485LF and SKY13418-485LF main/diversity antenna switches cover SP4T through SP8T, and allow up to eight bands of WCDMA/LTE.
Switch matrices are typically used in the design verification or manufacturing phase of test systems. They’re designed to move signal routing and signal conditioning to a test system’s central location. This makes the characterization of the calibration plane between the DUT and the test equipment simpler, reduces insertion loss, improves signal integrity, and better controls phase issues. They can be used in both commercial wireless and aerospace/defense settings. This page provides an overview of Dow-Key Microwave’s offerings as it relates to switch matrices.
This single pole, 36 throw (SP36T) switch features multi-octave frequency range coverage, 70 dB min isolation, 1 W CW power handling, 7 dB max insertion loss, a single +5 V supply, 100 nsec switching speed, and low profile packaging.
If the last few generations of video consoles taught us anything, it’s that gamers have almost entirely embraced internet connectivity in their systems, and that wired controllers are a thing of the past. This page provides an overview of Skyworks’ front-end modules, low noise amplifiers, switches, and power detectors used in Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo consoles. These components help facilitate online play and wireless controller connectivity.
