PIN Diode Switches

The HSW and HSWM series of broadband PIN Diode switches cover frequency ranges from 18 to 65+ GHz. The HSW switches utilize a low loss finline structure with silicon or GaAs beam lead diodes, while the HSWM switches utilize GaAs MMIC switches in a microstrip configuration with launch to either 2.9/2.4 connectors or waveguide. Superior performance in a compact size is featured in these designs. Gold plated housings are used to achieve maximum performance and reliability.
