Claimed to provide industry leading linearity in a common anode configuration, M/A-COM Technology Solutions has introduced the MASW-011040 and MASW-011041 high power PIN diode switches. The devices operate over the 50MHz to 1GHz frequency range and target military and civilian customers who require higher CW and pulsed power operation for land mobile radio applications.
Capable of handling 200 Watts CW incident power at a base plate temperature of 85°C, the devices deliver greater than 40dB isolation at 1GHz with insertion loss of less than 0.5dB. Both devices are compatible with MACOM’s MADR-010574 PIN diode driver.
Paul Wade, Product Manager, M/A-COM Technology Solutions, commented: "These high power switches are ideal for land mobile applications requiring high linearity, broadband performance and low loss. These switch devices incorporate high levels of integration which provide users over 80% of space savings and significant reduction in BOM content."
Manufactured using MACOM’s hybrid manufacturing process featuring high voltage PIN diodes and passive devices, the MASW-011040 and MASW-011041 are available in single 9mm HQFN 20-lead plastic packages. Production quantities and samples of MASW-011040 and MASW-011041 are available from stock.
