The MASW-011094 is a high power SPDT with 50 Ohm terminated RF ports. This broadband, high linearity, SPDT switch was developed for Ka–Band applications that require up to 40 Watts CW power handling at an environmental temperature of +85 C while maintaining low insertion loss and high isolation.
The SPDT MMIC utilizes MACOM’s proven AlGaAs PIN diode technology. The switch is fully passivated with silicon nitride and has an added polymer layer for scratch protection. The protective coating prevents damage to the junction and the air-bridges during handling and assembly. The die has backside metallization to facilitate an epoxy die attach process.
These switches are ideally suited for satellite and Point-to-Point communications systems, radar systems, radiometers, test and instrumentation equipment and other high frequency applications.
