Commercial 8GHz Solid State RF Switches

Source: JFW Industries, Inc.

JFW has added a line of 50 Ohm solid-state RF switches that operate 20MHz to 8GHz. These commercially rated models are ideal for constructing low cost RF testbeds for automated testing. The switches are controlled with TTL control lines.  The switches can hot switch up to +26dBm with typical isolation of 55dB at 8GHz.
