Tyco Electronics M/A-COM announced the MASW-008955, a DC-3.5GHz SP3T RoHS compliant switch for applications that require high linearity, low insertion loss, and fast settling time over a wide frequency range in an ultrasmall package size.

"Typical applications for this product include filter and antenna switching in WLAN or Bluetooth systems that connect separate receive functions to a common antenna," said Tom Galluccio, product line manager, Tyco Electronics M/A-COM. "The switching time required from the software/baseband to the output power at the antenna can vary widely from application to application. The part can be used in all systems operating up to 3.5GHz requiring low control voltage."

Tyco M/A-COM's MASW-008955 is fabricated on a low-cost 0.5?m gate-length GaAs process with full passivation added for robust reliability, which is achieved in a miniature 2mm 8-lead PDFN package. Each MASW-008955 switch is 100 percent RF tested to ensure performance compliance, similar to many of M/A-COM's switch offerings.

Pricing starts at 24 cents for quantities of 100,000. Delivery is from stock.
