Non-Reflective MMIC SP4T Covers DC to 18 GHz
Hittite Microwave Corporation announces its GaAs pHEMT SP4T (single pole, four throw) MMIC switch which is suitable for automotive, industrial sensors, test and measurement, microwave radio, military and space applications from DC to 18 GHz. The HMC641 is a wideband, non-reflective SP4T switch that exhibits insertion loss of 2 dB and isolation of 42 dB at midband and it features an on-chip binary decoder which requires only two control lines. High P1dB and input IP3 performance of 24 dBm and 40 dBm, respectively, make it appropriate for applications requiring moderate to high linearity. This compact MMIC SP4T switch requires no external matching components, and it occupies a footprint of only 1.9 × 1.6 mm.
