The MASW-011108-DIE is a high power symmetrical SPDT PIN diode switch. This broadband, reflective, high linearity, switch was developed for 6 - 18 GHz applications that require up to 14 W of power handling while maintaining low insertion loss and high isolation.
The SPDT MMIC utilizes MACOM’s proven AlGaAs PIN diode technology. The switch is fully passivated with silicon nitride and has an added polymer layer for scratch protection. The protective coating prevents damage to the junctions and the anode air-bridges during handling and assembly. The die has backside metallization to facilitate an epoxy die attach process.
