Rutronik UK offers wideband RF switches from Infineon
Wideband RF Switches with High Switching Speed
Two series of RF switched by Infineon are available from Rutronik UK. The wideband RF diversity switches BGS14WMA9 and BGS12WN6 are characterised by high switching speeds, making them particularly suitable for WLAN and Bluetooth applications. They offer wideband support with 0.05 to 6.0GHz coverage for FM radio, LTE, LAA and 5G applications.
In addition to high switching speed, both types offer high linearity up to 26dBm input power as well as low insertion loss and high port to port isolation up to 6GHz.
The RF switches are manufactured using Infineon‘s patented MOS technology. They combine the performance of gallium arsenide (GaAs) switches and the economy, integration and electrostatic discharge (ESD) robustness of traditional CMOS switches, says Rutronik. Unlike switches with GaAs technology, external DC blocking capacitors at the RF ports are only required if the DC voltage is applied externally.
The BGS12WN6 is a single pole dual throw (SPDT) diversity switch with two ports. The BGS14WMA9 is a single pole four throw (SP4T) switch with four RF ports, each of which can be used as termination of the diversity antenna, handling up to 26dBm.
Rutronik’s parent company, is Rutronik Elektronische Bauelemente, the third largest distributor in Europe, according to European Distribution Report 2017 and number 11 worldwide, according to SourceToday, May 2018.
