The MASW-011130 from MACOM is an SP3T PIN Diode Switch that operates from 2 to 22 GHz. It has a very fast-switching speed of less than 10 ns and can handle up to 33 dBm of CW input power. The switch has an insertion loss of 1 dB and provides over 35 dB of isolation. It is fully passivated with silicon nitride and has an added polymer layer for scratch protection. The protective coating prevents damage to the junctions and the anode air-bridges during handling and assembly.
The switch is available as a fully monolithic die that measures 1.86 x 1.86 mm and has integrated DC blocks and RF bias networks. It has backside metallization to facilitate an epoxy die to attach process. The switch is ideal for many applications, including Test & Measurement, and broadband communication systems.
