IDT Introduces Low-Loss, High-Isolation RF Switches with New Constant Impedance Technology
IDT Expands Its RF Switch Portfolio with the F2914 and F2915 High-Performance SP4T and SP5T Switches
SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 20, 2015—Integrated Device Technology, Inc.® (IDT®) (NASDAQ: IDTI) today announced the expansion of its RF product portfolio with two switches that offer low loss and high isolation, with a new-to-the-industry constant impedance technology, called Kz™. The F2914 and F2915 are 50-ohm SP4T and SP5T RF switches that exhibit insertion loss of only 1.1 dB with corresponding IIP2 of 124 dBm and IIP3 of 61 dBm at 4 GHz.
The products utilize IDT’s new Kz innovative design technology to maintain a near-constant impedance when switching between RF ports, improving hot switching reliability and system response time while protecting downstream components from transients. The new switches are ideal for base stations (2G, 3G and 4G), repeaters, Test and ATE equipment, digital pre-distortion, and point-to-point, public safety and cable infrastructures.
“Low-loss, high-isolation multiport switches with high linearity are important components in many of our customers’ applications,” said Chris Stephens, general manager of IDT’s RF division. “By offering new RF switches with the Kz innovative design technology we provide our customers with a way to reliably ‘hot switch’ components with minimum voltage and impedance excursions.”
The switches are packaged in an industry-standard NBG24 4mm x 4mm 24 pin QFN package, allowing customers to take advantage of the new switches on existing as well as new designs.
Pricing and Availability
Samples are available now. The F2914 is priced at $1.56 and the F2915 at $1.82 for 10k units.
