RF Control Products

RF control products are fundamental electronic components that direct or modify radio frequency signals. For example, RF switches direct the RF signal to one of several possible paths while RF attenuators reduce the signal strength for purposes such as feedback control. Richardson RFPD has a broad offering of RF control products from leading manufacturers.

The PE42545 is a HaRP™ technology-enhanced reflective SP4T RF switch die that supports a wide frequency range from 9 kHz to 67 GHz. It delivers low insertion loss, fast switching time and high isolation performance, making this device ideal for test and measurement (T&M), 5G mmWave, microwave backhaul, radar and satellite communication applications.

The SKY59608-711LF is intended for mode-switching in WLAN applications. It is part of Skyworks’ Sky5® product portfolio that streamlines 5G architectural complexities with highly integrated transmit/receive front-end solutions and diversity receive (DRx) modules.
