Hittite Press Release - April 29, 2010
Hittite's Non-Reflective Multi-Throw Switch Covers DC to 20 GHz
Wideband MMIC Switch is Ideal for Test & Measurement, Military and Space Applications!
MA, April 29, 2010 – Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for
communication & military markets, announces the release of a ceramic SMT packaged GaAs pHEMT SP4T (Single Pole,
Four Throw) MMIC Switch which is ideal for industrial sensors, test and measurement, microwave radio, military EW
and space applications from DC to 20 GHz.
HMC641LC4 is a GaAs pHEMT MMIC SP4T Switch which is rated for operation from DC to 20 GHz. This wideband,
non-reflective switch exhibits 2.1 dB insertion loss and 42 dB isolation at midband, and features an on-chip
binary decoder which requires only two control lines. High P1dB and input IP3 performance of +23 dBm and +39 dBm
respectively, make the
HMC641LC4 ideal for applications requiring wide bandwidth and moderate to high linearity. The
HMC641LC4 SP4T accepts control voltages of 0 and -5 V, and consumes only 3 mA. This versatile high isolation
switch requires no external matching components and is compatible with high volume surface mount manufacturing
HMC641LC4 MMIC SP4T Switch is housed in a ceramic RoHS compliant 4 x 4 mm SMT package, and complements
Hittite’s broad line of GaAs MMIC switch products which are available in die, SMT and connectorized module formats
with operating frequencies from DC to 86 GHz.
Samples of all SMT packaged products are available from
stock and can be ordered via the company’s e-commerce site or via direct purchase order. Released data sheets are
available on-line at

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
