The MASW-010647 is a monolithic, terminated Silicon PIN diode SPDT switch designed for X-Band high power, high performance applications. The switch handles greater than 20W of CW power over the 8.0-10.5 GHz frequency band. The device is an innovative solution which offers low insertion loss of 0.8 dB as well as high isolation performance of 37 dB. The MASW-010647 integrates a bias network to allow for simplified bias application and switch control. The device is also fabricated using MACOM’s patented HMIC™ process, which allows for the integration of silicon pedestals that embed series and shunt diodes in low loss, low dispersion glass. This very small chip-scale solution benefits customers by smaller size, lower number of components, and improved yield and repeatability. The device integrates bias networks and offers simplied biasing with +/- 5V operation.
