New High-Power PIN Diode Switches Cover Frequencies
from 20 MHz to 2700 MHz
Irvine, California - Pasternack, a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter
wave products, has unveiled a new line of
SPDT high-power PIN diode RF switches that offer desirable performance
for transmit and receive signal routing applications. Typical applications can involve
use in radar systems, EW applications, base station infrastructure, repeaters, military/microwave
radios, public safety/land mobile radios, UHF/VHF radios, and test and measurement applications.
Pasternack's new line of SPDT high-power PIN diode
switches consists of 7 different models that offer excellent power handling and isolation
with broadband performance and fast switching speed. Ideal for transmit and receive applications,
these solid state PIN diode switches are perfect for connecting from an antenna to a
receiver or for a transmitter with frequent change overs. They provide input CW power
handling (hot switching) capability up to 150 watts, high isolation levels up to
75 dB typical and frequency coverage ranges from 20 MHz up to 2700 MHz.
These PIN diode switch models are all 50 Ohm designs with integrated TTL logic
circuitry. Typical performance includes < 0.4 dB insertion loss, up to 75 dB
of isolation, maximum switching speeds as low as 150 nanoseconds and some models specify
maximum peak power levels up to 500 watts. Bias voltage requires either a dual bias
of +5 and +15 Vdc or a single bias of +5 Vdc. All models have an EAR99
export classification. These PIN diode RF Switches are highly reliable with operational
temperatures as wide as -40°C to +85°C and are available in rugged and compact packages
that support SMA female connectors, some models are compliant to MIL-STD-202 environmental
"Pasternack's new series of high-power PIN diode RF switches offer impressive input
power handling and isolation with broadband performance and fast switching speed. Designers
can select from 7 different models with frequencies that range from 20 MHz up to
2700 MHz for applications that may involve radar, EW, military and commercial radios,
and test and measurement. All models are readily available for urgent demands with no
minimum order quantity required," said Tim Galla, Product Manager.
Pasternack's new SPDT high-power PIN diode RF switches are in stock and ready for
immediate shipment with no minimum order quantity.
