M/A-COM Tech launches 120W SPDT switch for LTE base-stations and military communications

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes analog semiconductors, components and subassemblies for RF, microwave and millimeter-wave applications) has launched a 120W PIN diode SPDT switch for network applications and military communications.

The T/R switch offers high isolation of 50dB at 2.7GHz, low insertion loss of 0.2dB, and high Tx RF input power handling of 120W at 85°C. Supplied in a surface-mount 4mm 16-lead PQFN package, the MASW-000936 is a SPDT high-power, high-linearity PIN diode T/R switch suiting applications requiring small footprint and operating at 0.05-6.0GHz, including LTE and WiMAX base-stations, radar, land mobile, and two-way radios.

“The MASW-000936 was designed with high-power LTE base-stations in mind, where it can handle average transmit power levels over 100W,” says Amer Droubi, product manager, Cellular Infrastructure. “The switch offers high isolation needed for protecting the sensitive elements of the receiver,” he adds. “This switch simplifies the system design, shrinks the PCB board area and reduces the bill of material cost by replacing multiple discrete pin diodes.”

Production quantities and samples are available from stock.
