M/A-COM Technology Solutions announced a new SPDT switch-limiter that is suited for S-Band military and commercial radar systems. The MASL-011023 operates over the 2.7 GHz to 3.5 GHz bandwidth and handles 125W of CW power at 85°C while providing a fast recovery time of <100 ns. The switch is offered in a JEDEC standard footprint surface mount 7-mm x 7-mm QFN package that enables repeatable, high volume manufacturing. The MASL-011023 delivers low insertion loss, high isolation and a low flat leakage of 10 dBm in Rx mode and 7 dBm in Tx mode. This SP2T switch-limiter is designed to minimize insertion loss and handle +51 dBm CW power through the transmit path. This device also incorporates a fully integrated RF & DC bias network.
