ALLEN, Texas, 6 Jan. 2017. Fairview Microwave Inc. in Allen, Texas, is introducing the FMSW2026 SPDT RF and microwave PIN diode absorptive switch for military radar, satellite and multi-gigabit communications, surveillance systems, point to point and point to multi-point wireless transmission links and test and measurement applications.

The FMSW2026 is an ultra broadband single pole double throw (SPDT) PIN diode switch that covers 100 MHz to 67 GHz and is available in a coaxial package.

The RF and microwave device features maximum input power handling of 0.5 Watts (CW), insertion loss of 6 dB typical, 10.5 dB maximum, and Isolation of 65 dB typical, 40 dB minimum.

The design also displays fast switching speed of 100 nanoseconds maximum. J1 and J2 ports are terminated in 50 ohms when switched in the isolation (off) state to absorb higher frequency signal reflections.
