Switches are com-mon components, used extensively in microwave systems to direct the signal flow between components [1]. For this project, our par-ticular interest was in a SPDT input device for a microwave instru-ment that required high isolation over a wide frequency range. This is just one of a variety of applications where fast switching is required in addition to appropriate RF performance, such as insertion loss, frequency response, dis-tortion, and maximum signal level.
