pSemi, a Murata company pioneering in the design and development of semiconductor integration and advanced connectivity, has announced the introduction of a new high-performance SP4T RF switch – the PE42548.

This advanced packaged solution is set to provide an ideal alternative to traditional flip-chip solutions. Designed to accelerate time-to-market, the PE42548 meets the increasing demand for contract manufacturing (CM)-friendly RF solutions, particularly in test and measurement (T&M) applications.

PE42548 is a HaRPTM technology-enhanced reflective switch that supports a wideband frequency range from 9kHz to 30GHz. Powered by pSemi’s proprietary UltraCMOS technology, this switch offers superior performance with a low insertion loss of 2.0dB at 26GHz, rapid switching time of 60ns, high power handling of 33dBm, and exceptional isolation performance of 41dB. These features make it perfect for a wide array of applications, including T&M, 5G mmWave, microwave backhaul, radar, and satellite communications. Moreover, the PE42548 operates efficiently in extreme environments, with a temperature range of –40°C to 105°C, and is housed in a compact 20-lead, 3 × 3 millimetre LGA package.

“At pSemi, we aim to deliver innovative RF solutions that not only meet but exceed our customers’ expectations,” says Rodd Novak, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for pSemi. “The PE42548 SP4T RF switch addresses key challenges faced by our customers, offering a streamlined, turnkey solution that simplifies the assembly process. We are excited to bring this advanced packaged RF solution to various industries, including test and measurement, 5G advanced ATE, 6G development, microwave radar, and satellite communications.”

pSemi will be showcasing PE42548 at the 2024 International Microwave Symposium (IMS), to be held 16–21 June 2024, in Washington D.C. on booth #1351 where visitors can see a live demonstration. Samples for the PE42548 are available now and are expected to be commercially available in late 2024.
