Switch offers 46% reduction in footprintNEC has introduced the UPG2163T5N GaAs MMIC SPDT (Single Pole Double Throw) switch that delivers industry-leading insertion loss performance in a new miniature, low profile 6-pin package. This TQFN package measures 1.5mm? and 0.37mm high. Compared to the industry-standard SOT-363, it offers a 46 percent reduction in footprint and a 57 percent reduction in height. The ultra-low profile makes the TQFN a potential alternative to chips in module designs, and an ideal choice for thin PCM cards.

With operation from 2.3GHz to 6GHz, the UPG2163T5N is well suited for dual band 802.11a,b,g as well as 3.5GHz WiMax applications. Key specifications include 0.4dB typical insertion loss at 2.5GHz and 0.5dB typical at 6GHz; 35dB typical input to output isolation at 2.5GHz and 30dB at 6GHz; 31dBm output power at 1dB compression at 2.5GHz and 3Vdc and 29dBm typical at 6GHz and 3Vdc.

The UPG2163T5N is priced starting at 42 cents each in 100,000-piece quantities.
