Pasternack has announced the expansion of its line of broadband PIN diode switches for a variety of different applications.

The new portfolio comprises 10 different models in SP2T, SP4T, and SP8T configurations, all featuring integrated TTL drivers and rugged, MIL-grade, coaxial-packaged designs.

These cutting-edge switches cater to an ultra-broadband frequency range, from as low as 1 MHz to an unprecedented 75 GHz. This wideband frequency coverage encompasses popular market bands, including UHF, VHF, L, S, C, X, Ku, K, Ka, Q, U and V, offering unmatched flexibility and compatibility for a diverse range of applications.

The product line includes both reflective and absorptive designs, with the latter ensuring low voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) performance. These high-precision switches offer impressive input power handling of up to 1 watt CW and rapid switching speeds as low as 50 nanoseconds typical.

The company’s new offering is RoHS compliant and can function reliably in a broad operational temperature range, from -40°C to +85°C (-40°F to +185°F). Moreover, these robust, high-reliability assemblies are engineered to resist environmental conditions such as altitude, vibration, humidity and shock.

“PIN diode switches are vital for directing high-frequency signals in transmission, and our expanded line brings together speed, reliability and versatility,” said Product Line Manager Kevin Hietpas. “These switches are ideal for radar, phase array systems, broadband jamming, wireless infrastructure, 5G communication and more.”
