MACOM's MA8334 Series of multi-throw high power switch
modules are SPDT and SP3T devices intended for use from
10 MHz to 1000 MHz. They are designed to function
with an input power of 100 watts, CW, into a
50 ? load with a nominal source VSWR of 1.3:1.
These switch modules are constructed using advanced
hybrid technology and utilize PIN diode
chips that have been optimized for low loss and
high reliability. These switch modules make use of
MACOM’s, high voltage, CERMACHIP™ PIN diode chip
distinguished by its low thermal resistance and
low intermodulation distortion.
Applications for the MA8334 switch modules include
100W incident power T/R antenna and diversity
switches. Typical bias conditions for nominal
switch operation are +50mA @ +1V for the low
loss condition and -100V @ 0 mA for isolation.
