Application Note

Non-Reflective SP4T SWITCHES

F9044 SP4T switch use an integrated assembly of PIN diodes mounted in a microstrip transmission line.

All models are supplied with integrated drivers. Standard units are supplied with logic that turns a port ON with the application of a logic "0" control signal. Maximum ON/OFF times are less than 50 nsec.

 

  • 26 to 40 GHz frequency range
  • Non-Reflective
  • Low VSWR and Insertion loss
  • 55 dB isolation
  • Designed for Phase & Amplitude matched
