PIN Diode Switches

The HSW series of broadband PIN Diode switches covers the waveguide bands from 18 - 110 GHz. They utilize a low loss finline structure with silicon or GaAs beam lead diodes for minimum insertion loss and maximum isolation. Superior performance in a compact size is featured in these designs. Gold plated housings are used to achieve maximum performance and reliability. Full waveguide bands are covered up to 60 GHz.

Many options of on/off ratio values are offered with low loss versions and isolation levels up to 50 dB. Switches are available with or without drivers with TTL drivers standard and ECL drivers available as an option.


High-Power PIN Diode Switches

The HSWM series of broadband high power switches covers the waveguide bands from 18 - 80 GHz. They utilize a low loss microstrip structure using GaAs MMICs for high RF power handling and low insertion loss. Superior performance in a compact size are featured in these designs. Gold plated housings are used to achieve maximum performance and reliability.

Switches are available in SPST, SPDT, SP3T and SP4T configurations. Power handling at 35 GHz Is 1 watt nominal up to several watts. Both waveguide and coax versions are available.

Many options of on/off ratio values are offered with low loss versions and isolations up to 50 dB. Switches are available with or without drivers with TTL drivers standard and ECL drivers available as an option.


PIN Diode Attenuators

The HVA series broadband PIN diode attenuators cover the waveguide bands from 18 - 110 GHz. The attenuators are available for applications requiring variations in power levels using a control voltage. A 0 to 5 V tuning range is used to control the attenuation level. This design utilizes a low loss finline structure with silicon beam lead diodes for minimum insertion loss and optimum attenuation flatness.

Superior performance in a compact size are features of this design. Gold plated housings are used to achieve maximum performance and reliability. Full waveguide bands are covered up to 60 GHz.

Many options are offered with low loss and isolation levels up to 50 dB. Standard attenuation values include 10, 15, 20, 30, 40 and 50 dB.
