From New Electronics:
Analog Devices has released 44GHz single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) switches, the ADRF5024 and ADRF5025 in advanced Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) technology.
The switches are broadband, with the ADRF5024 yielding flat frequency response from 100MHz to 44GHz, while the ADRF5025 from 9kHz to 44GHz, with repeatable characteristics better than 1.7dB insertion loss and 35dB channel to channel isolation.
Both parts support 27dBm power handling for both through and hot-switching conditions. The new switches come in a compact, 2.25mm x 2.25mm surface-mount-technology (SMT) compatible package, which will benefit radio frequency (RF) and microwave design experts, saving bias power, eliminating peripheral components and achieving higher integration in systems such as phased arrays, portable instrumentation, high resolution body scanners and next generation millimeter-wave communication infrastructure for emerging 5G and high-constellation satellite networks.
