M/A-COM has announced two RoHS-compliant switches that are optimized for applications that require high power handling, low insertion loss and high isolation, such as WiMAX or MESH applications.

The MASW-007587 dpdt switch is designed to operate from DC to 4GHz with output power at 1dB compression (P1dB) of 40dBm, typical insertion loss of 1dB and isolation of 30dB. Typical applications include two antenna solutions requiring diversity switching in linear systems that connect the receiver and transmitter to both antennas.

The MASW-007588 spdt switch is designed to operate from DC to 6GHz with P1dB of 40dBm, typical insertion loss of 0.7dB and isolation of 29dB. Typical applications include single antenna for transmit/receive switching in linear systems.

Fabricated on a 0.5μm gate-length GaAs process with full passivation, both switches are housed in surface mount 3-by-3mm PQFN packaging. The MASW-007587 is available from stock and is priced at Rs.99.56 ($2.25) for quantities of 10,000. The MASW-007588 is available from stock and is priced at Rs.29.65 (67 cents) for quantities of 10,000.
