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., May 19, 2016 – 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.
IDT offers high-performance and full-featured radio frequency (RF) products that deliver exceptional performance in compact packages. All IDT RF signal path devices are silicon based, offering inherent advantages over GaAs-based products. The portfolio includes RF mixers, RF and IF variable gain amplifiers (VGA), digital step attenuators (DSA), demodulators, broadband modulators, RF switches, and wideband voltage variable attenuators. IDT’s RF devices are ideal for use in such products as cellular 4G base stations, broadband repeaters, distributed antenna systems and microwave backhaul equipment.
