The MASW-011071 is a terminated silicon PIN diode SPDT switch designed for X-Band high power, high performance applications. The switch is assembled in a lead-free 7 mm 44-lead PQFN plastic package and handles greater than 20 W of CW power over the 8.0 - 10.5 GHz frequency band.
The device is fabricated using MACOM’s patented HMIC process, which allows for the integration of silicon pedestals that embed series and shunt diodes in low loss, low dispersion glass. The switch offers 1 dB insertion loss as well as 38 dB isolation performance. The device integrates a bias network to allow for simplified bias application and switch control.
