Through its Isolink subsidiary, Skyworks introduces a low-loss, high performance wideband DC to 8GHz hermetic GaAs IC SPDT absorptive switch. The ISO13286 is suitable for high reliability space, satellite, and defence applications. The device performs with 50dB isolation at 4GHz and low loss of 1.5dB at 4GHz.
Testing is available to the screening requirements of MIL-PRF-38535 Class B and S, in addition to the required quality conformance inspection. The ISO13286 die is produced with Skyworks' GaAs pHEMT process, which has shown radiation tolerance to 100kRad. The device is provided in a 7-lead SMT 9.77x8.76x1.65mm package.
