Broadband GaAs Switches Cover DC-18GHz


New non-reflective MMIC switches feature binary decoder circuitry that reduces the number of logic control lines

Custom MMIC, a developer of monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), is adding to its family of MMIC switches; with two new 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 2.5dB and high port-to-port isolation of 40dB 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. Ideally suited for high performance military and instrumentation applications, both switches provide a switching speed of approximately 60 ns and an input P1dB of 21 dBm.

These switches feature binary decoder circuitry that reduces the number of logic control lines. The control voltages for both switches are 0/-5V. Both MMICs are housed in a ROHS compliant 4x4 mm QFN surface mount package.
