Integrated SPDT switch for WLAN applications

November 18, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Skyworks has released the SKY13592-689LF, a single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) switch for mode switching in WLAN applications such as ISM band radios, smartphones and connectivity modules.

This 1.0-6.0 GHz device uses advanced switching technologies to maintain low insertion loss and high isolation for all switching paths. It also delivers high-linearity performance, making it an ideal choice for low-power transmit/receive applications. Insertion loss is 0.45 dB typical at 2.45 GHz, and isolation is 35 dB typical also at 2.45 GHz. Linearity performance specifies IP0.1dB of +30 dBm. Integrated DC blocking capacitors eliminate the need for external DC blocking capacitors. This switch comes in an ultra-miniature, 1 × 1 × 0.5 mm, 6-pin exposed pad plastic micro lead-frame package dual (MLPD) package.
