12-position coaxial switches by RLC Electronics feature high reliability, outstanding electrical performance, and a long life. They’re available in terminated (absorptive) or non-terminated (reflective) configurations.
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.
The MAS4488 is a broadband matrix switch with an 8 input, 8 output, non-blocking configuration. The system itself is comprised of a processor board, an 8x8 matrix, a LAN interface, a redundant power supply, and manual control.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Smartphone users have challenged (and will continue to challenge) mobile networks with the increased amounts of data they download. Though the wireless spectrum is vast, it’s still limited in its availability. Carrier aggregation is a technique that uses two or more bands at the same time to combine spectrum and increase data throughput, giving smartphone users a better data experience. Skyworks recently released two new antenna switches for use in carrier aggregation applications.
