Pasternack Introduces SPDT PIN Diode RF Switches from 20 MHz to 2700 MHz

Pasternack has unveiled a new line of SPDT high-power PIN diode RF switches that offer desirable performance for transmit and receive signal routing applications. Typical applications can involve use in radar systems, EW applications, base station infrastructure, repeaters, military/microwave radios, public safety/land mobile radios, UHF/VHF radios, and test and measurement applications.

Pasternack's new line of SPDT high-power PIN diode switches consists of 7 different models that offer excellent power handling and isolation with broadband performance and fast switching speed. These solid state PIN diode switches are perfect for connecting an antenna to a receiver or for a transmitter with frequent change overs. They provide an input CW power handling (hot switching) capability of up to 150 Watts, high isolation levels up to 75 dB typical and frequency coverage ranges from 20 MHz up to 2700 MHz.

These PIN diode switch models are all 50 Ohm designs with integrated TTL logic circuitry. Typical performance includes less than 0.4 dB insertion loss, up to 75 dB of isolation, maximum switching speeds as low as 150 nanoseconds and some models specify maximum peak power levels up to 500 watts. Bias voltage requires either a dual bias of +5 and +15 Vdc or a single bias of +5 Vdc. All models have an EAR99 export classification. These PIN diode RF Switches are highly reliable with operational temperatures as wide as -40°C to +85°C and are available in rugged and compact packages that support SMA female connectors, some models are compliant to MIL-STD-202 environmental test conditions.

Pasternack's new SPDT high-power PIN diode RF switches are in stock and ready for immediate shipment with no minimum order quantity. For detailed information on these products, click here.
