Absorptive switches cover up to 9kHz to 8GHz

Availability and full design support capabilities for nine new UltraCMOS SP6T, SP8T and SP12T absorptive switches from Peregrine Semiconductor have been announced by Richardson RFPD. The PE42462, PE42482 and PE42412 feature high port-to-port isolation, high linearity, low insertion loss and exceptional power handling.

They are optimised for 4G and 4.5G wireless infrastructure switching applications such as robust digital pre-distortion (DPD) loops, filter banks and transmit/ receive (T/R) paths signal routing.

These devices cover a frequency range from 10MHz to 8GHz, which also makes them ideal for 5 GHz LTE Licensed Assisted Access (LAA) and LTE WiFi Link Aggregation (LWA).

Key features of these new switches for wireless infrastructure applications include:

The PE42562, PE42582 and PE42512 are optimised for the demands of next-generation test and measurement equipment.

These switches support a wide frequency range from 9kHz to 8GHz and offer an external VSS pin to eliminate spur.

With low insertion loss, high isolation, linearity, fast switching and settling times, they are ideal for applications such as filter bank switching and transmit/receive (T/R) signal path switching.

The PE426462, PE426482 and PE426412 are optimised for applications that demand extreme temperature support, and they deliver industry-leading performance across a wide temperature range of -55 to +125 degrees Celsius.

With high isolation, low insertion loss and a fast RF TRISE/ TFALL time, these switches boast the high-performance specifications necessary to utilise the full potential of a high throw-count design.
