The MSW2T-2040X-198 from RFuW Engineering is an SPDT PIN Diode Switch that operates from 100 to 2000 MHz. It has an insertion loss of less than 0.25 dB, provides isolation of more than 40 dB, and has a switching time of 2 µs. The switch leverages high-reliability hybrid manufacturing processes which yield both superior RF and thermal performance compared to MMIC or glass carrier-based technologies. The hybrid design approach permits precise PIN Diode selection to optimize RF performance at a competitive cost. It can handle peak power of up to 60 dBm and an average CW power of up to 56 dBm.
The MSW2T-2040X-198 is tailored to minimize Transmit-to-Antenna loss while maximizing Transmit-to-Receive isolation and enabling maximum flexibility and assigning either port as Transmit Port and the other Receive Port. It has a forward diode voltage of 1.2 V with a forward diode current of 250 mA. The switch is available in a surface-mount package that measures 10.1 x 6.2 x 2.5 mm and is suitable for radar T/R modules, IFF systems, high power T/R switching, switch bank filters, military communication radios, and other mission-critical applications.
