Integrated Bias Network
Low Insertion Loss / High Isolation
Glass Encapsulate Construction
RoHS Compliant* and 260°C Reflow Compatible
The MASW-002102-13580 and MASW-003102-13590
devices are SP2T and SP3T broad band switches with
integrated bias networks utilizing M/A-COM Technology
Solutions HMICTM (Heterolithic Microwave Integrated
Circuit) process, US Patent 5,268,310. This process
allows the incorporation of silicon pedestals that form
series and shunt diodes or vias by imbedding them in
low loss, low dispersion glass. By using small spacing
between elements, this combination of silicon and glass
gives HMIC devices low loss and high isolation per-
formance with exceptional repeatability through low
millimeter frequencies. Large bond pads facilitate the
use of low inductance ribbon bonds, while gold back-
side metallization allows for manual or automatic chip
bonding via 80/20 - Au/Sn, 62/36/2 - Sn/Pb/Ag solders
or electrically conductive silver epoxy.
