Tyco Electronics Expands Broadband Component Offerings with New High
Linearity M/A-COM SPDT 3.0 V Switch
Low-Cost, Lead-Free Switch Ideally Suited for Linear Applications that Require High Isolation and
Low Insertion Loss
LOWELL, Mass. – August 16, 2007 – Tyco Electronics today
announced the M/A-COM MASW-008075, a SPDT 3.0 volt switch fabricated for applications that require
high linearity, low insertion loss and high isolation. This low-cost switch is ideally suited for
802.11b/g applications with a bias of 3.0 V. The MASW-008075 switch has a low typical insertion loss
of 0.40 dB while achieving an isolation of 25 dB and P1dB of 28 dBm.
“We have developed this low-cost SPDT switch to address the varied needs of our global customer
base who require very low insertion loss and maximum system linearity performance, all while
providing excellent switching characteristics,” said David Folding, product manager, Tyco
Electronics. “As a leader in the industry we are proud to provide a wide range of switch components
and will continue to create, manufacture and deliver products and services that meet the needs of
our customers around the world.”
Typical applications for the M/A-COM MASW-008075 include transmitter and receiver (Tx / Rx)
switching in linear systems such as WLAN 802.11b/g, which connect the receiver and transmitter to a
single antenna. In addition, diversity switching can be achieved by connecting two switches
back-to-back on a printed circuit board.
The M/A-COM MASW-008075 is RoHS-compliant and is fabricated on a low-cost 0.5-micron gate-length
GaAs process and features full passivation for increased reliability. Each MASW-008075 is packaged
in a compact SC-70 package and 100 percent RF tested to ensure performance compliance.
