NEC Corp.'s UPG2193T6E single pole eight throw (SP8T) GaAs MMIC antenna switch was developed specifically to meet the needs of new 3G UMTS, W-CDMA and Quad Band Edge mobile phone designs.

The UPG2193T6E replaces the common two-switch solution in mobile communication applications with a single miniature device. The UPG2193T6E delivers low insertion loss, high isolation and high linearity.

Supporting multiband mobile communication transceiver platforms, the UPG2193T6E provides switching between five GSM and three W-CDMA pins. The UPG2193T6E also features an onboard SPI controller. It is housed in a 3.5mm x 3.5mm package measuring 0.55mm in height.

The UPG2193T6E is available from California Eastern Laboratories, NEC Electronics' exclusive sales, marketing and development partner in the Western Hemisphere.
