This high-power silicon PIN diode SPDT switch covers the 0.9 to 4.0 GHz frequency range and is ideal for transmit/receive switching in land mobile radios and military communications systems, as well as transmit/receive switching and failsafe switching in TD-SCDMA, WiMAX, and LTE base stations.
This single-pole, double-throw switch covers the 0.01 to 6.0 GHz frequency range and features low insertion loss (0.40 dB @ 2.0 GHz), high isolation (>25 dB @ 2.0 GHz), and single bit control. It’s been designed for mode switching in cellular pre-power amplifier applications or dual-band WLAN (802.11a/b/g/n) applications.
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.
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.
The ISO13316 is a non-reflective, low-loss GaAs pHEMT switch from Isolink, a subsidiary of Skyworks. This high-performance switch covers the DC to 6 GHz wideband frequency range, utilizes hermetic surface-mount technology, and performs with 45 dB isolation at 2 GHz and low loss of 1.1 dB at 6 GHz.
Ducommun’s series of single-pole, double-throw switches covers the DC to 400 MHz frequency range. The switches weigh just 9 ounces and are ideal for integration into MRI machines as well as hyperthermia and ablation equipment.
The AM6002 is single-pole double-throw (SPDT) switch featuring 1.0dB insertion loss, a +5V supply, +3V control, 30dB isolation, +42dBm IP3, +27dBm P1dB, and an operating temperature range of -40C to +85C.
Ducommun offers a variety of manual coaxial switches with variations in type, frequency range, VSWR, insertion loss, isolation, power, and connector type. Shared specifications include 50 ohms (nominal) RF impedance, a 1,000,000 cycle operating life, manual operating models, and an operating temperature range of -35oC to +85oC ambient.
