Custom MMIC Announces New DC- 26GHz Switch
SPDT offers low insertion loss and high isolation
Custom MMIC, a developer of monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), has added a new single-pole-double-throw (SPDT) switch to its standard product portfolio - the CMD230. Its 1.4 dB insertion loss is claimed to be the company's lowest yet for an SPDT.
The CMD230 is a general-purpose, broadband, high-isolation reflective MMIC SPDT switch in die form. Covering DC to 26 GHz, it features low insertion loss of 1.4 dB, Input IP3 of 37dBm and high isolation of 40 dB at 13 GHz. The CMD230 operates using complementary control voltage logic lines of 0/-5 V and requires no bias supply.
The CMD230 switch is pin-compatible with the now obsolete CSW0118 from Celeritek. Applications for the CMD230 include microwave radio, test instrumentation, and military radar/EW.
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
