Monolithic SPST and SPDT PIN Switch Elements Deliver Up to 100W Through 6 GHz
Microsemi's MPS2R10-606, MPS4103-607 and MPS2R11-608 are single-chip silicon monolithic series-shunt elements designed with minimal parasitic inductance to provide optimum insertion loss of less than 0.3 decibel (dB), 55 dB of isolation and 500 nanosecond (nS) switching times over the entire 100 MHz to 6 GHz frequency range. These products are ideal replacements for the conventional shunt mounted chip and series mounted beam lead PIN diode normally used in the manufacture of broadband microwave switches. Capable of switching up to 100W of continuous wave (CW) power, these devices are ideal for transmit/receive (T/R) and high power switching in military and commercial radio, radar and cellular infrastructure applications. These products meet RoHS requirements per EU directive 2002/95/EC. For more information, visit http://www.microsemi.com/product-directory/diodes-pin/1530-monolithic-series-shunt-hybrid.
New Series of Low Cost MELF PIN Diodes Feature 2 GHz Switching, 500V Breakdown Voltage
Microsemi has introduced UMX502-UMX812, a new series of low cost, metal electrode leadless face bonded (MELF) high power, ceramic PIN diodes. This series of PIN diodes are hermetically sealed, high reliability surface mount packaged devices with full face bonded chips and very low inductance construction. The MELF PIN diodes are ideal for a wide range of general purpose and broadband switching, attenuating and phase-shifting applications from high frequency through 2 GHz, as well as for use in MRI coil switching and other low magnetic applications. These RoHS-compliant products meet the requirements of EU directive 2002/95/EC, and are fully compatible with pick and place and solder reflow manufacturing techniques. UMX502-UMX812, are ESD HBM Class 2 products, and exhibit breakdown voltage ratings up to 500 volts (V).

Lowest Sleep State Current Sub-GHz Transceiver
Operating in the 779-965 megahertz (MHz) unlicensed industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) frequency bands, Microsemi's ZL70550 consumes only 2.8 milliamps (mA) while transmitting at -10 decibel-milliwatts (dBm) output power and a similar 2.5 mA during reception. It offers an extremely low sleep state current of 10 nanoamperes (nA), making it ideal for low-duty cycle applications. Microsemi addresses the high cost of battery replacement issues common with medical and industrial customers by leveraging the intellectual property from its ultra-low power implantable pacemakers and hearing aids to provide the lowest power wireless link in an extremely small form factor that is easy to deploy.
