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.
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 line of SPST and SPDT PIN diode switches feature high power handling, low insertion loss, high antenna-to-receive-isolation, a broad frequency range (20 MHz to 6 GHz), and much more. There are currently nine different SPST and SPDT models available in this series, all with varying maximum power, package sizes, operating frequency ranges, and more.
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 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.

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. This improved performance is achieved by having the ability to align the filters to the switches, thus removing any of the associated mismatches between the two.
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.
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.
