Miniature PIN switch covers 1.0 to 18.0 GHz frequency range

AtlanTecRF have today announced two models of ultra wide band miniature PIN switch, each covering the entire 1.0 to 18.0 GHz frequency range. Both absorptive types, the SPST and SP2T switches deliver in excess of 70dB isolation while maintaining VSWR better than 2.0:1.


Additional features of these compact switches include a very fast sub 100 nanosecond switching time, which makes them suitable for a host of applications from EW systems through communications and radar to the microwave test bench.

“The SPST version measures just 20 x 16 x 5 mm and is believed to be the smallest PIN switch of its kind currently available,” said Geoff Burling, AtlanTecRF CEO, “These new switches represent incredible value to the microwave systems designer and are available off-the-shelf”.

Switching control is effected using TTL as both models contain integral drivers and can operate over the full military temperature range of -55 to +85C. Connectors are SMA female and DC supply requirements are +/-5V. Housings are laser sealed to ensure consistently high performance in harsh environments.
