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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

High Power Broadband Performance for WiMAX and Base Station Applications

LOWELL, Mass. – May 22, 2007 – Tyco Electronics today announced the availability of the M/A-COM MASW-000822-12770T, a new SP2T broadband PIN diode switch for 0.5 - 6.0 GHz applications. The switch is ideal for higher power WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) base station and military radio applications and features high linearity and power handling. The device provides over 8 Watts (C.W.) power handling coupled with 65 dBm IIP3 for maximum performance.

“The new M/A-COM SP2T broadband switch is an ideal choice for customers who need high power and high linearity for broadband switching, particularly in WiMAX base stations,” said Tim Daly, product manager, Tyco Electronics M/A-COM diode products. “In addition to high performance, these switches incorporate polymer protective coatings that prevent damage and contamination during handling and assembly, ensuring that our customers receive the most reliable broadband switches available today.”

The MA-COM MASW-000822-12770T is a SP2T, high linearity, common anode, asymmetrical PIN diode switch in 3mm PQFN package. It is ideal for use in the 2.3 - 2.7 and 3.3 - 3.8 GHz WiMAX base station applications, where LNA protection is required. In the transmit antenna state at 3.8 GHz, the switch provides a remarkable 0.35 dB loss, and 27 dB transmit-receive isolation to protect the LNA. The switch is capable of handling 39 dBm C.W. and 43 dBm peak power, at 3μS pulse width, with 1 % duty cycle. The high linearity PIN diode design produces an exceptional 0.8 % EVM value at 3.5 GHz (transmit state), 8W incident power with OFDM modulation. Accordingly, at 3.8 GHz, the switch provides a remarkable 0.5 dB loss and 22 dB transmit-receive isolation in the antenna-receive state for the receive function. The switch can operate from +5V, +12, and + 28V or +5V and -15V D.C. power. MA-COM also provides a line of PIN Diode drivers compatible for these switches.

Pricing and Availability The MASW-000822-12770T is priced at $1.98 in quantities of 10,000 pieces. Contact Tyco Electronics' M/A-COM products domestic and international sales channels for price and delivery quotes. Datasheets and supporting technical documents are available online at http://www.macom.com.
