The MASW-004103-1364 from MACOM is a SP3T (Heterolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit) silicon PIN diode switch that operates from 50 MHz to 20 GHz. The HMIC process results in low loss and high isolation through low millimetre-wave frequencies. It has an insertion loss up to 1.4 dB, an isolation up to 54 dB and has a switching speed of 20 ns. This surface mountable switch has low parasitic capacitance and inductance, and can handle up to 38 dBm of CW power. It has an additional layer of polymer for scratch and impact protection. It has been designed for use in broadband, low to moderate signal, high performance switch applications.
