High-rel GaAs non-reflective switch spans DC to 6 GHz

July 16, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Through its Isolink subsidiary, Skyworks has a low-loss, high performance wideband DC to 6 GHz hermetic GaAs IC single-pole, single-throw (SPST) non-reflective switch.

The ISO13316 is suited to high reliability space, satellite, and defence applications. The device as 45 dB isolation at 2 GHz and low loss of 1.1 dB at 6 GHz. Testing is available to the screening requirements of MIL-PRF-38535 Class B and S, in addition to the required quality conformance inspection (QCI). The ISO13316 die is produced with Skyworks' GaAs pHEMT process that has shown radiation tolerance to 100 kRad. The device is housed in a 7-lead surface mount technology (SMT) 0.385 x 0.345 x 0.065 in. package.
