MACOM claims industry-lead switching

M/A-COM has announced two high power PIN diode switches, with industry leading linearity in a common anode configuration, operating over the 50 MHz to 1 GHz frequency range.

The MASW-011040 and MASW-011041 are designed for Military and Civilian customers who require higher CW and pulsed power operation for land mobile radio applications.

These devices are capable of handling 200 Watts CW incident power at a base plate temperature of 85⁰C, delivered in a single 9mm HQFN 20-lead plastic package. Covering 50 MHz to 1 GHz, both devices deliver >40 dB isolation at 1 GHz with insertion loss of <0.5 dB and are compatible with MACOM’s MADR-010574 PIN Diode Driver.

The MASW-011040 and MASW-011041are manufactured using MACOM’s hybrid manufacturing process featuring high voltage PIN diodes and passive devices and are a high power switch ideal for use on land mobile radio and MIL-COM applications that require higher power.

“These high power switches are ideal for land mobile applications requiring high linearity, broadband performance and low loss,” said Paul Wade, Product Manager. “These switch devices incorporate high levels of integration which provide users over 80% of space savings and significant reduction in BOM content.”

CPU choice for display based systems
Behind every display based system is the CPU which acts as the brain of the entire module creating the data that is presented as well as driving the I/O peripherals, display and touchscreen. There are many factors to consider when choosing the right CPU for your project, including whether you pick a complete Single Board Computer (SBC) or a stripped back core module (COM).
