HMIC™ Silicon PIN Diode Switch
with Integrated Bias Network
♦ Broad Bandwidth 2 to 18 GHz
♦ Usable up to 26 GHz
♦ Integrated Bias Network
♦ Low Insertion Loss / High Isolation
♦ Rugged, Glass Encapsulated Construction
♦ Fully Monolithic
♦ RoHS Compliant
The MASW-006102-13610 is a SP6T broadband
switch with integrated bias network utilizing M/A-COM
Technology Solutions HMICTM (Heterolithic Microwave
Integrated Circuit) process, US Patent 5,268,310. This
wafer fabrication process allows the incorporation of
silicon pedestals that form series and shunt diodes
and vias by imbedding them in low loss, low
dispersion glass. By using small spacing between
elements, plus the combination of silicon and glass
gives this HMIC device low loss and high isolation
performance with exceptional repeatability through low
millimeter frequencies. Large bond pads facilitate the
use of low inductance ribbons or 1 mil wire while full
backside gold metallization allows for die attachment
using 80/20 - Au/Sn, 62/36/2 - Sn/Pb/Ag solders or
electrically conductive silver epoxy.
The MASW-006102-13160 is a high performance
switch which is suitable for use in multi-band ECM,
radar, and instrumentation control circuits where high
isolation to insertion loss ratios are required. With a
standard +5V/-5V, TTL controlled PIN diode driver,
80nS switching speeds can be achieved.
