The RI2583 from Ranatec is an SP8T Solid State Switch Module that operates from DC to 6 GHz. It has an insertion loss of less than 4.3 dB and provides an isolation of 55 dB. The switch can handle an input power of 30 dBm (0.01-6 GHz) and has a VSWR of less than 1.6:1. It requires a DC supply of 4-30 V and consumes less than 8 mA of current. The switch offers good linearity, power handling, and switching speed. It has a settling time of 50 us and has I2C interfaces. The RI2583 is available in a module that measures 50 x 56 x 22 mm with SMA Female connectors and is ideal for production testing of mobile handsets and mobile base stations, built-in-test (BITE), and MIMO applications.
