IRVINE, Calif. – Pasternack Enterprises in Irvine, Calif., is introducing a line of single pole double throw (SPDT) high-power PIN diode RF switches for radar, electronic warfare (EW), civil and military radios, and test and measurement applications.
The switches consists of seven different models that offer power handling and isolation with broadband performance and fast switching speed.
For transmit and receive applications, these solid state PIN diode switches are for connecting from an antenna to a receiver or for a transmitter with frequent change overs. They provide input CW power handling (hot switching) capability up to 150 Watts, high isolation levels to 75 dB typical, and frequency coverage ranges from 20 MHz to 2700 MHz.
These PIN diode switch models are all 50 Ohm designs with integrated TTL logic circuitry. Typical performance includes less than 0.4 dB insertion loss, to 75 dB of isolation, maximum switching speeds as low as 150 nanoseconds and some models specify maximum peak power levels to 500 Watts.
Bias voltage requires either a dual bias of +5 and +15 volts DC or a single bias of +5 volts DC. All models have an EAR99 export classification. These PIN diode RF Switches operate in temperatures frp, -40 to 85 degrees Celsius and are available in rugged and compact packages that support SMA female connectors. Some models comply to MIL-STD-202 environmental test conditions.
