M/A-COM Technology Solutions Announces New GaAs SP3T Switch for Smartphone and Tablet Applications
Switch Delivers Low Insertion Loss, Fast Settling Speed, and Full Passivation
Lowell, MA - M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech), a leading supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced today a new GaAs SP3T switch for Wireless LAN and Bluetooth (WLAN/BT) applications in smartphone and tablet platforms.
The switch is ideal for low control voltage, low insertion loss, high isolation, and small size applications. Packaged in a lead free 1.5mm 8-Lead PDFN, the MASW-010612 is ideal for switching between WLAN and Bluetooth functions to a common antenna. The switch is fabricated using a 0.5 micron gate length GaAs pHEMT process, and boasts fast settling speed for timing-sensitive applications. Operating between a frequency range of DC-3.5 GHz, and optimized at 2.4GHz, the MASW-010612 has a low insertion loss of 0.6 dB and a high P1dB at 36 dBm.
"This switch complements our bumped DIE MASW-009276 which is in production today" said Kevin Harrington, Product Manager. "The packaged WLAN/BT SP3T function in the 1.5mm package offers an easy pick and place solution to our customers."
The table below outlines typical part number performance:
Parameters Units MASW-010612
