pSemi Launches High-Performance 30 GHz SP4T RF Switch at IMS 2024

pSemi Corporation, a Murata company leading in the design and development of semiconductor integration and advanced connectivity, announced the introduction of a new high-performance SP4T RF switch—the PE42548. pSemi is showcasing PE42548 at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) 2024 from June 16–21, 2024, in Washington, D.C. This advanced packaged solution is set to revolutionize the market by providing an ideal alternative to traditional flip-chip solutions. Designed to accelerate time-to-market, the PE42548 meets the increasing demand for contract manufacturing (CM)-friendly RF solutions, particularly in test and measurement (T&M) applications.

PE42548 is a HaRP™ technology-enhanced reflective switch that supports a wideband frequency range from 9 kHz to 30GHz. Powered by pSemi’s proprietary UltraCMOS® technology, this switch offers superior performance with a low insertion loss of 2.0 dB at 26 GHz, rapid switching time of 60 ns, high power handling of 33 dBm, and exceptional isolation performance of 41 dB. These features make it perfect for a wide array of applications, including T&M, 5G mmWave, microwave backhaul, radar, and satellite communications. Moreover, the PE42548 operates efficiently in extreme environments, with a temperature range of -40°C to 105°C, and is housed in a compact 20-lead, 3 x 3 millimeter LGA package.

“At pSemi, we aim to deliver innovative RF solutions that not only meet but exceed our customers’ expectations,” says Rodd Novak, vice president, sales and marketing for pSemi. “The PE42548 SP4T RF switch addresses key challenges faced by our customers, offering a streamlined, turnkey solution that simplifies the assembly process. We are excited to bring this advanced packaged RF solution to various industries, including test and measurement, 5G advanced ATE, 6G development, microwave radar, and satellite communications.”

pSemi is giving a live demonstration of this product at IMS 2024 in Washington DC this week. Click here to view everything RF's coverage of IMS 2024.
