Die On Carrier, Silicon SPDT Switch: ADRF5424


The ADRF5424 is a reflective, single-pole double-throw (SPDT) switch manufactured in a silicon process attached on a gallium arsenide (GaAs) carrier substrate. The substrate incorporates the bond pads for chip and wire assembly, and the bottom of the device is metalized and connected to ground.

This device operates from 100 MHz to 60 GHz with better than 1.5 dB of insertion loss and 35 dB of isolation at 55 GHz. The ADRF5424 has an RF input power handling capability of 27 dBm up to 40 GHz for both the through path and hot switching.

The ADRF5424 draws a low current of 14 μA on the positive supply of +3.3 V and 120 μA on negative supply of −3.3 V. The device features complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS)-/low voltage transistor to transistor logic (LVTTL)-compatible controls.

The ADRF5424 is designed to match a characteristic impedance of 50 Ω. For more information on this product, download the available datasheet.
