PIN Diode Switches

  • 18 to 110 GHz Product Range
  • Full band versions up to 60 GHz
  • Integrated Drivers
  • Fast switching times
  • SPST, SPDT and custom multi-throw models
  • The HSW series of broadband PIN Diode switches covers the waveguide bands from 18 to 110 GHz. The switches utilize a low loss finline structure with silicon or GaAs beam lead diodes for minimum insertion loss and maximum isolation. Superior performance in a compact size is featured in these designs. Full waveguide bands are covered up to 60 GHz. Many options of on/off ratio values are offered with low loss versions and isolation levels up to 50 dB. Switches are available with TTL drivers standard.

    The HSWM series of PIN Diode Switches cover select frequency bands up to 80 GHz. These switches are MMIC-based, with some models offering higher power handling as compared to the HSW series.
