RF Parts Australia have announced RFMD’s release of RF1603, a new single-pole three-throw (SP3T) broadband switch designed for switching applications which require very low insertion loss and high power handling capability with minimal DC power consumption. The excellent linearity performance achieved by the RF1603 make it ideal for use in CDMA applications.
The RF1603 broadband switches offer very high isolation between the RF ports, providing greater separation between the transmit and receive paths, which is critical in full-duplex systems. Additionally, RF1603 broadband switch includes integrated decoding logic, allowing just two control lines needed for switch control.
The RF1603 is packaged in a very compact 2.5 mm x 2.5 mm, 12-pin, leadless QFN package. Suitable for CDMA applications, receive diversity switching and general purpose switching applications.
Also just released, the RF1604, a single-pole four throw (SP4T) broadband switch.
