Broadband RF Switches offer optimized isolation, power handling.

Press Release Summary:

Supplied in 4 x 4 mm, 16-pin QFN packages, F2932 and F2933 silicon-based, low-distortion, 50 Ω, SPDT switches operate at 50–8,000 MHz. Both offer similar RF performance, pin out, and control, and F2932 has additional Enable/Disable feature that lets all RF paths be put into an off state and disable VCTL feature. At 4 GHz, F2932 and F2933 deliver 66 dB isolation; low distortion of 64 dBm IIP3 @ 15 dBm tones (1 MHz channel spacing); 0.93 dB insertion loss; and P1dB of >35 dBm.

IDT's Latest Broadband RF Switches Deliver Industry-Leading Isolation and Power Handling While Maintaining Low Insertion Loss

Drop-In Compatible with GaAs Switches, IDT's 50 to 8000 MHz Broad Bandwidth, 50 Ohm Absorptive SPDT Switches Offer an Unparalleled Combination of RF Specs

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT) (NASDAQ: IDTI), today introduced two high-isolation, low-loss, high linearity broad band RF switches for a wide variety of applications. Operating at 50 to 8000 MHz, the IDT® F2932 and F2933 are silicon-based, low-distortion 50-ohm single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) switches. With industry-standard 4x4mm 16-pin QFN packages and drop-in compatible footprints and control, their rich combination of specs make the devices ideal for communications and public safety systems, radar and general purpose switching.

At 4 GHz the F2932 and F2933 deliver:

--  high isolation of 66dB

--  low distortion of 64dBm IIP3 @ 15dBm tones, 1MHz channel spacing

--  insertion loss of 0.93 dB

--  P1dB of >35dBm

The inherent benefits over most competitive products, particularly when compared to typical GaAs-based switches, are:

--  better RF performance

--  greater reliability

--  easier integration

--  lower total solution cost

"These two new devices offer one of the industry's highest isolation values, and when combined with their low distortion and low insertion loss they provide superior performance for many different high-isolation applications," said Chris Stephens, general manager of IDT's RF division. "These switches represent the latest way IDT is helping engineers meet the demanding requirements of today's RF designs."

F2932 and F2933 offer similar RF performance, pin out and control, with the F2932 having an additional Enable/Disable feature allowing all RF paths to be put into an off state and disabling the VCTL feature.
