Non-reflective MMIC Switches Cruise DC to18 GHz

Custom MMIC add to its family of MMIC Switches with two GaAs MMIC switches, the non-reflective CMD235C4 and CMD236C4. The CMD235C4 is a DC-18 GHz broadband MMIC SP5T switch offering broadband performance with an insertion loss of 2.5 dB and high port-to-port isolation of 40 dB at 10 GHz.

 

The CMD236C4 covers DC to 18 GHz and offers a low insertion loss of 2.5 dB and high isolation of 42 dB at 10 GHz. Suited for military and instrumentation applications, both switches provide a switching speed of approximately 60 ns and an input P1dB of 21 dBm. Both feature binary decoder circuitry that reduces the number of logic control lines and the control voltages for both switches are 0/-5V. Both MMICs are housed in a ROHS compliant 4x4 mm QFN surface mount package. Greater knowledge by way of datasheets awaits.
