Richardson RFPD adds Microsemi’s SPDT reflective switch
Distributor Richardson RFPD has announced availability and design support for a 100W continuous wave SPDT reflective switch from Microsemi. The MPS2R10-606 is optimised for UHF high-power and T/R switching applications
The SPDT series-shunt PIN diode switch operates from 50 to 1,000MHz, with 500ns switching speed. At 100MHz, it typically offers 60dB isolation, with 0.1dB insertion loss and 28dB return loss. At 500MHz, it typically offers 55dB isolation, 0.2dB insertion loss, and 15dB return loss.
The switch can handle 100W CW incident power and is offered in a 0805-size surface mount package. Thermal transfer is optimised by eliminating the traditional package interface. It is compatible with pick-and-place and solder reflow manufacturing techniques.
