New Solid State PIN Diode Switches from Pasternack Display Impressive Isolation, Ultra-Fast Switching Speeds
Pasternack, a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, greatly expands their portfolio of in-stock solid state PIN diode switches covering frequencies from 10 MHz to 67 GHz. 69 unique new models of 50 ohm PIN diode switches are available in compact connector package styles and display impressive isolation, insertion loss, and switching speed performance.
Pasternack’s new PIN diode switches offer a broad range of solutions in applications where fast switching and long lifetime are critical. These PIN diode switches are used extensively in aerospace, defense, and commercial RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave communication systems, switch matrix assemblies, and production testing environments for a variety of signal routing functions between control components. Integrated TTL-compatible driver circuitry offers accurate logic controls for computer command and automated test systems.
The PIN diode switches from Pasternack are available in popular configurations including SPST, SPDT, SP3T, SP4T, SP5T, SP6T, SP8T, SP12T, and Transfer models that cover select broadband frequencies ranging from 10 MHz to 67 GHz. These switches offer superior performance with high isolation up to 80 dB, fast switching speeds down to 50 nsec, insertion loss levels as low as 1 dB, and dual operating voltage ranges from -15 to -5 and +5 Vdc. Maximum RF input power handling varies from 0.1 to 1 watt (CW) depending on the model. Additionally, all models are available in rugged packages that are designed to meet military grade environmental test conditions and several models feature field replaceable connectors.
“Pasternack offers a comprehensive selection of PIN diode switches in desirable configurations that are compact and cover frequency bands from 10 MHz to 67 GHz, with low insertion loss, high isolation and fast switching speed performance,” explains Tim Galla, Active Components Product Manager at Pasternack. “69 new in-stock models have been added and are available for immediate shipment, providing a tremendous advantage for designers on tight deadlines.”
