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...

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Announces New Products at MILCOM, 2011
Baltimore, Maryland, November 9, 2011 – M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech), a leading supplier
of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced today the
MASW-000932, a new High Power SPDT switch, and the MADR-010574, a 250 V PIN Diode Driver.
“M/A-COM Tech's new high power SPDT switch and 250 V PIN Driver products offer high power handling capability in a
small plastic package.” said Kevin Harrington, Product Manager. “These products offer the superior performance
required for military communication and public safety radios.”
MASW-000932 is a HMIC 80Watt SPDT switch ranging from 1 MHz to 4000 MHz. Packaged in a surface mount 4mm PQFN
package, this compact SPDT switch offers wideband performance with excellent isolation to loss ratio for both TX
and RX state. With high isolation and low insertion loss, the
MASW-000932 is suitable for high power military radio applications as well as LTE, TD-SCDMA and WiMAX
The table below outlines typical part number performance:

Also featured at the MILCOM Show is the 250 V PIN Diode Driver that is scheduled for release in early 2012.
Packaged in a convenient 7mm PQFN package, the MADR-010574 features 50 V to 250 V reverse bias voltage and up to
170 mA of forward current bias. With built in CMOS ASIC technology, the driver biases four diodes simultaneously.
The MADR-010574 biases all high voltage diodes, including M/A-COM Tech's MELF diodes and KV series diodes. The
driver is well-suited for demanding, high-performance applications such as military communication and public
