Tyco Electronics Expands Broadband Component Offerings with New High
Linearity M/A-COM SPDT 3.0 V Switch
Lead-Free Switch Ideally Suited for Linear Applications that Require
High Isolation and Low Insertion Loss
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
“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.
