hello there! i have a big problem in what switch or switching technique to be used regarding our Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)Reader/interrogator which is a transceiver.

we wanted to increase the read range or the effective area where our RFID can read the RFID we design and build an amplifier for transmit and receive operation (though we still don't know if it will work when integrated with the circuit). Modulation used for communication from reader to tag is amplitude shift keyingn and loading modulation from tag to reader.

It happens that our RFID reader/interrogator have only one node for transmitting and receiving signals/data. is there any way to synchronize the switching of the transmit and receive amplifier? is there a device that can disable and isolate the receive amplifier during transmit mode and vice versa.

please help me...thank you very much!

It sounds like you need a diversity switch. Hittite Microwave Corporation have several. I would try and call them.

use MACOM, Skyworks RF Switches or use discrete PIN Diodes for Switching.

Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
