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...

Tyco Electronics Continues Leadership Role in Broadband Switch Technology Development with New SPDT Switch

M/A-COM's MASWSS0201 Broadband SPDT SwitchNew Broadband, Single Control Line SPDT Switch Sets New Standard for High Isolation & High Linearity in
Un-Powered State

LOWELL, Mass. – July 19, 2007 – Tyco Electronics today introduced the M/A-COM MASWSS0201, a broadband SPDT switch which is ideally suited for applications that require high isolation and low insertion loss over a wide frequency range, including digital and cable television frequencies, among others. Specifically, the SPDT switch maintains a high isolation greater than 63 dB up to 110 MHz and 45 dB up to 900 MHz while maintaining low insertion loss. In addition, when the switch is un-powered, it automatically enables a default-on state achieving excellent performance.

"We are committed to developing products that meet the unique demands of our customers around the world and this new M/A-COM SPDT switch delivers industry leading low insertion loss in the default-on state, a critical requirement for many of the sophisticated applications on the market today,” said Kevin Harrington, product manager, Tyco Electronics M/A-COM IC products. “Tyco Electronics' team of engineers will continue to anticipate market needs and respond with products that meet and exceed usability expectations.”

Tested in a 75 ohm system, the M/A-COM MASWSS0201 achieves <0.9 dB of insertion loss and 65 dB of isolation at 100 MHz. The switch is designed to have a P1dB of 21 dBm at 100 MHz which increases to 28 dBm at 900 MHz. Greater than 40 dB isolation is maintained up to 2.5 GHz with a corresponding insertion loss less than 1.5 dB. It is configurable to have either absorptive (primary) or reflective RF1, RF2 port matches to meet the end-user's system requirements.

For cost sensitive and space-constrained applications, the M/A-COM MASWSS0201 lead-free surface mount 3 mm PQFN packaging and competitive pricing are attractive attributes. The switch is fabricated on a low-cost 0.5-micron gate-length GaAs process with full passivation added for robust reliability. Just as many switch counterparts from Tyco Electronics, each M/A-COM MASWSS0201 is 100 percent RF tested to ensure performance compliance.

Price and Availability

The M/A-COM MASWSS0201 is available from stock and is priced at $0.61 for quantities of 10,000. Contact M/A-COM's domestic and international sales channels for price and delivery quotes. Datasheets and supporting technical documents are available online at www.macom.com.
