M/A-COM, a business unit of Tyco Electronics and a provider of wireless RF, microwave and millimeter wave components, announced a new RoHS-compliant spdt switch for applications that require fast settling time, high linearity, low insertion loss, high isolation and small size. According to the press release, the fast settling time of the MASWSS0192 switch allows time-sensitive systems to respond faster without a reduction in RF performance.

Slow current transients during the turn-on phase are a typical problem for many standard spdt switches in a variety of time-sensitive applications. Test and measurement applications that require a quick response time can utilize the MASWSS0192 with its nominal settled-on resistance of 2.5?. Other key performance specifications for the product are its high power handling with P1dB of 28.5dBm, low typical insertion loss of 0.18dB and high isolation of 24dB.

The MASWSS0192 comes in a Pb-free SC-70 (SOT-363) packaging, is fabricated on a 0.5m gate-length GaAs pHEMT process, and features full passivation for increased reliability. Each MASWSS0192 is 100 percent RF- and DC-tested for gate lag to ensure performance compliance.

The MAWSSS0192 is available from stock and is priced at 70 cents in quantities of 10,000.
