RFMD, represented in Australia by RF Parts Australia , announces the arrival of a new family of high-performance GaAs pHEMT switches covering multiple bands in the DC to 25 GHz range. Every switch in the RFSW204x family delivers high isolation and low insertion loss, making them ideal for broadband communications, fiber optics, test and measurement, and military applications.

RFMD's RFSW204x switches deliver broadband performance. Easily adaptable to multiple frequencies, the RFSW204x deliver maximum inventory flexibility across multiple applications and P1dB output powers ranging from 19dBm to 27dBm and high IIP3 up to 47dBm which result in excellent system-level performance.

The RFSW204x family consists of three switch configurations: single pole double throw (SPDT), single pole triple throw (SP3T) and single pole four throw (SP4T). All of these configurations is available in absorptive or reflective versions.

The products are designed using RFMD's high performance 0.5-micron GaAs pHEMT process, offering insertion loss as low as 1dB, high isolation up to 45dB at 20GHz and fast switching speeds of 20nS. RFMD's RFSW204x switches are available in two packaging options: die-level and RoHS-compliant 3x3 mm QFN surface mount packages.
