150W PIN Diode Switches Span 20 MHz to 2.7 GHz

Pasternack’s latest line of SPDT high-power PIN diode RF switches find employment in radar systems, EW applications, base station infrastructure, repeaters, military/microwave radios, public safety/land mobile radios, UHF/VHF radios, and test and measurement applications. The line consists of seven different models that are suitable for connecting from an antenna to a receiver or for a transmitter with frequent change overs. They provide input CW power handling (hot switching) capability up to 150W, isolation levels up to 75 dB typical, and frequency ranges from 20 MHz to 2.7 GHz.

 

All models are 50Ω designs with integrated TTL logic circuitry. Typical performance includes < 0.4 dB insertion loss, up to 75 dB of isolation, maximum switching speeds as low as 150 ns, and some models specify maximum peak power levels up to 500W. Bias voltage requires either a dual bias of +5 and +15 Vdc or a single bias of +5 Vdc.  All models have an EAR99 export classification and operate in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +85°C. For more details, datasheets are available. Also, call Pasternack at +1-949-261-1920.
