RLC Electronics’ waveguide switches are available in SPDT and transfer configurations, can be manually or remotely controlled, and offer a choice of coil voltages and optional indicator contacts.
These SP12T antenna switch modules cover the 0.4-2.7 GHz frequency range. They’re both ideal for applications involving 2G/3G/4G multimode cellular handsets as well as embedded data cards.
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.
Low PIM switches by Dow-Key are now available in SPDT, DPDT and SP6T configurations with SMA or N-type connectors. These switches are specifically designed to 3rd order IM requirements below -160 dBc; at 1870 MHz and at approximately +43 dBm with carrier frequencies 1930 MHz and 1990 MHz.
This waveguide switch is available with both a manual and electrical drive type and with an E or H waveguide structure. Twelve different models are available, all with varying frequency ranges, switching times, loss, isolation, and average power. The line collectively covers the 2.6 to 40 GHz frequency range. For more information, download the datasheet.
Ducommun’s 2HNV/2NV/2SCV series of SPDT (single-pole, double-throw) switches cover the DC-400 MHz frequency range. They weight just 9 oz. and are ideal for integration into MRI machines as well as hyperthermia and ablation equipment.
This Pin switch covers the 20-5000 MHz frequency range and has <0.5 dB insertion loss, >40 dB isolation, <1.4 VSWR, 100 W (peak) power handling, and a <15µs switching speed. For additional specifications and an outline drawing, download the datasheet.
Antenna tuning and antenna diversity are key for smartphone manufacturers looking for analog semiconductor solutions that can handle more than 20 cellular frequency bands, as well as WiFi and Bluetooth®.
