High Power Switch Family Boosts Wireless Applications

The CG2409 family of high power RF switches are manufactured using pHEMT technology and are available in two packages: X3 and M2. The components can be used within an application to switch between Transmit / Receive modes, as Diversity Switches, switching between two different antennas, and switching between RF bands.

 

The CG2409X3 is a wideband, high-power single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) GaAs MMIC RF switch, specified for the frequency range of 0.05 to 6GHz, and can operate at a control voltage from 1.8V to 5V. The P0.1dB compression point of the switch is 37.5dBm at 3V.  The second and third harmonic specs are -80dBc and -85dBc respectively at input power of 26dBm. The insertion loss ranges from 0.3dB to 0.6dB while the isolation ranges from 32dB to 28dB over the frequency range. The device comes in a compact six-pin XSON package measuring 1.5 mm x 1.5 mm x 0.37 mm.
