Pin Diode Switches - DPDT

From 100 MHz to 24 GHz, any optimized bandwidth is available in absorptive or reflective models.  Units can be customized for your application with offerings of various isolations, switching speeds, size configurations and even matched phase and amplitude.  Control options include solder pins, SMA or SMC Connector, and Multi-Pin connector.

 

Frequency Ranges:  From 100 MHz to 24 GHz, any optimized bandwidth is available.

 

TTL Compatible Logic:  Logic ‘1’ = Low Loss J1-J2/J3-J4 and Logic ‘0’ = Low Loss J1-J4/J2-J3.  Switches without a TTL driver, +1 VDC @ +60 mA = Low Loss J1-J2 and -1 VDC @ -60 mA = Low Loss J3-J4 on 2 independent logic inputs or vice versa for J1-J4/J2-J3.  For additional logic options, please consult the factory.

 

High Speed Switching:  Switches are measured from 50% TTL to 10% / 90% RF from any set value to any set value.

 

Operating Temperature Range:  Standard models include temperature compensation in a range from -55° to +85° C.  For more severe environments, please consult the factory.

 

Low DC Power Consumption:  Switches with TTL drivers require ±5 VDC @ ±60 mA.

 

High RF Power Handling:  For power levels greater than listed, please consult the factory.

 

Standard Interfaces:  RF port connectors are ‘SMA’ female per MIL-C-39012.  DC/Logic connections are solder terminals.  Please consult the factory for additional options.

 

Matched Phase & Amplitude:  Models listed are available with matched ports.  Please consult the factory.
