The ADRF5130 is a high power SPDT Silicon switch that operates from 0.7 to 3.5 GHz. It enables designers to reduce hardware size and bias power consumption in cellular radio systems. The switch has an insertion loss of 0.6-dB, high isolation of 50 dB, excellent linearity of +68 dBm and peak power handling of 44 watts during continuous operation mode. The device features robust 2000-V electro-static-discharge (ESD) protection on all device pins. It also incorporates a fast CMOS-compatible control interface with switching time less than 1 us. Additionally, a symmetrical circuit architecture allows the RF inputs to be used interchangeably in high power applications.
The switch also reduces power consumption to more efficient levels by operating on a single low-voltage supply with extremely low current consumption compared to existing pin-diode-based solutions. It is available in a small 4 mm × 4 mm LFCSP SMT package.
