New SPDT Non-Reflective Switch Offers Positive Gain Slope – Custom MMIC is pleased to announce the addition of the CMD195, a new DC-20 GHz non-reflective SPDT switch, to their growing line of control products. The CMD195 operates across the DC to 20 GHz bandwidth with an insertion loss of 2.5 dB that reduces to 2 dB as the frequency increases. The terminated switch has an isolation of greater than 40 dB, port return losses less than -15 dB, an input 1 dB compression point of +25 dBm, and a switching speed of 1.8 nS. Switching operation is controlled by a pair of complementary logic signals at 0/-5 V. Ideal applications for the CMD195 are microwave radio and VSAT, telecom infrastructure, test instrumentation, and military end-use. The positive gain slope of the CMD195 versus frequency allows for natural gain equalization when multiple switches are cascaded together.
