New Series of E And W-Band PIN Diode Waveguide Switches With Ultrabroadband Capabilities For New High-Tech Projects


Diode Waveguide Switches

Pasternack a world renown microwave engineers company has released their new line of wave guide switches. These new innovative electrical diode switches have been equipped with a reflective design to be able to transmit a broadband frequency that will enhance speed with maximum potential.

Newly innovative E and W-band PIN diode waveguide switches are brought together for various capabilities that will enhance the entire industry with only a couple of parts added. Capabilities such as development, research, radar front end applications, telecommunications, and testing instruments.

The diodes configurations consist of four models with WR10 and WR12 waveguide ports that are capable of transmitting E-band (60-90GHZ) and W-band (75-110GHz) signals.

Pasternack has found a way to create a low loss Fin-line assembly that has a high-performance GaAs beam-lead diode. In doing so the it creates a 4dB typical insertion loss along with enhanced switching speed lower than speeds of 300nsec.

The Diode switches are required to have input power levels of 0.5dBm and must have a dual voltage bias of +5/-5VDC.

These switches are very unique by bringing together a switch and a control module configuration to the market and has is able to bring its maximum potential through the temperatures of -55 to 85co. The switches are also installed with a TTL driver circuitry along with a SMA connector control port for user friendly support.

Per a statement made by Product Manager at Pasternack is very certain that their products will not only meet customers product expectations but can fulfill orders with no minimum purchase order. Procuring more items such as Filters, Mixers, Noise Sources, Rotary Joints, Switches and many more. Pasternack products have been a enormous part of microwave industry for many years and many years to come.
