High power SPDT switch-limiter features fast recovery time
Operating over the 2.7 to 3.5 GHz bandwidth, the device handles 125 W of CW power at 85°C while providing ultra fast recovery time of less than 100 nanoseconds. The switch is offered in a JEDEC standard footprint surface mount 7 mm x 7 mm QFN package that enables repeatable, high volume manufacturing.
The MASL-011023 delivers low insertion loss, high isolation and the lowest available flat leakage of 10 dBm in Rx mode and 7 dBm in Tx mode. This SP2T switch-limiter is designed to minimize insertion loss and handle +51 dBm CW power through the transmit path. This device also incorporates a fully integrated RF and DC bias network which provides the customer with a complete switch-limiter solution.
“The combination of highest power handling, lowest flat leakage and ultra fast recovery time make the MASL-011023 switch-limiter a unique and attractive solution for receiver protection in radar applications”, said Paul Beasly, Product Manager. “Furthermore, as a result of the high volume and automated package assembly, customers will benefit from consistent performance, tight manufacturing tolerances and superior reliability for critical radar requirements.”
