Spectrum Microwave Offers Wideband Switches with High Isolation, Frequency

Spectrum Microwave introduces their newly expanded line of switches now offering SPDT to SP5T designs with a wide bandwidth from 100 MHz to 22 GHz. These high performance switches feature an integral TTL driver and are available with fast switching speeds of better than 100 nsec, high isolation of up to +95 dB and insertion loss as low as 0.8 dB.

Spectrum Microwave’s high isolation, high frequency switches are constructed with gold wire and gold plated leads, which provides lower loss than other types of construction. These switches are fully customizable with up to 5 throws with continuous RF input power to +30 dBm, DC nominal voltage of +5.0/-12 Volts, VSWR of 1.5:1 and an operating temperature of -55°C to +85°C. The switches also feature an SMA connectorized housing with field removable connectors.

Spectrum Microwave’s high isolation, high frequency switches are ideal for a wide range of applications including test equipment, radar, fiber optic and demanding military programs. The series 021 switches are priced starting from $200 depending on quantity and configuration, with typical delivery lead-times of 8 weeks.
