MMIC transmit receive switchHittite Microwave Corporation released a GaAs pHEMT SPDT (single pole, double throw) MMIC T/R (transmit/receive) switch for automotive telematics, private mobile radio (PMR), cellular/3G, WiMAX/4G and test equipment applications from DC to 4 GHz. The HMC784MS8GE is a low loss, high linearity GaAs pHEMT 10W SPDT MMIC switch offers a P1dB and IP3 performance of +40 dBm and +62 dBm respectively. With its low distortion at high input power levels, and its fast switching characteristics, the HMC784MS8GE is suitable for modern base station infrastructure applications. On-chip circuitry allows single positive supply operation from +3 VDC to +8 VDC at low DC current, while the control inputs are compatible with most CMOS logic outputs.
