CMD196C3 Switch

DC-18 GHz (L, S, C, X, Ku Band) SPDT Non-reflective Switch MMIC

The CMD196C3 is a general purpose broadband RF / Microwave high isolation non-reflective MMIC SPDT switch housed in a leadless 3x3 mm surface mount (SMT) package. Covering DC to 18 GHz, the CMD196C3 features a low insertion loss of 1.5 dB and high isolation of 46 dB at 8 GHz. The CMD196C3 switch MMIC operates using complementary control voltage logic lines of 0/-5 V and requires no bias supply.

Custom MMIC Space Qualified MIMCs
Space Qualification

Custom MMIC strives to design all our MMIC devices in a manner such that they can be readily chosen for your space applications. We offer turnkey space screening / testing service when a device is categorized as "Ready for Space Screening" on our website. In some cases, our devices have already been "Space Qualified" or "Mission Specific" and are often available from stock. Our "Mission Specific" devices are screened based on custom applications where screening is derived from MIL requirements and tailored specific to customer needs. Just let us know when requesting price and delivery, or technical support, if your devices will be used in space.
