Switch Delivers Low Insertion Loss, Fast Settling Speed, and Full Passivation
Lowell, MA, March 21, 2012 – M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM
Tech), a leading supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions,
introduced today a new GaAs SP3T switch for Wireless LAN and Bluetooth
(WLAN/BT) applications in smartphone and tablet platforms.
The switch is ideal for low control voltage, low insertion loss, high
isolation, and small size applications. Packaged in a lead free 1.5mm
8-Lead PDFN, the
MASW-010612 is ideal for switching between WLAN and Bluetooth functions
to a common antenna. The switch is fabricated using a 0.5 micron gate
length GaAs pHEMT process, and boasts fast settling speed for timing-sensitive
applications. Operating between a frequency range of DC-3.5 GHz, and
optimized at 2.4GHz, the
MASW-010612 has a low insertion loss of 0.6 dB and a high P1dB at
“This switch complements our bumped DIE MASW-009276
which is in production today” said Kevin Harrington, Product Manager.
“The packaged WLAN/BT SP3T function in the 1.5mm package offers an easy
pick and place solution to our customers.”
