RFMW, Ltd. announces design and sales support for Skyworks SKY12213-478LF, a single-pole, single-throw (SPST) switch capable of handling up to 150W of RF energy. The SKY12213-478LF spans the frequency range of 500 to 6000MHz with a typical isolation of 23dB. Based on silicon, PIN diode technology, the SKY12213-478LF is controlled with a single positive power supply and draws minimal current yet insertion loss remains low at approximately 0.5dB mid band. Housed in a 4x4mm QFN package, the SKY12213-478LF is suitable for failsafe switching in LTE TDD base stations or LMR and military communications systems where a high power series diode is used as a building block for higher power, multi-throw designs.
The SKY12213-478LF is part of a family of high power switch solutions from Skyworks that include SPST and SPDT products housed in 4x4mm QFN packages.
