MACOM’s MASWSS0161 is a GaAs MMIC SPDT
switch in a lead free SOIC-8 lead surface mount
plastic package. The MASWSS0161 is ideally suited
for use where low power consumption is required.
Typical applications include transmit/receive switching,
switch matrices and switched filter banks in systems
such as radio and cellular equipment, PCM,
GPS, fiber optic modules, and other battery powered
The MASWSS0161 is fabricated using a monolithic
GaAs MMIC using a mature 1 micron process. The
process features full chip passivation for increased
performance and reliability.
