HMIC™ Silicon SP4T PIN Diode Switch
with Integrated Bias Network
Broad Bandwidth Specified up to 18 GHz
Usable up to 26 GHz
Integrated Bias Network
Low Insertion Loss / High Isolation
Fully Monolithic, Glass Encapsulated Chip
The MA4SW410B-1 device is a SP4T broadband
switch with integrated bias network utilizing
MACOM's HMICTM (Heterolithic Microwave
Integrated Circuit) process, US Patent 5,268,310.
This process allows the incorporation of silicon
pedestals that form series and shunt diodes or vias
by imbedding them in low loss, low dispersion
glass. By using small spacing between elements,
this combination of silicon and glass gives HMIC
devices low loss and high isolation performance with
exceptional repeatability through low millimeter
frequencies. Large bond pads facilitate the use of
low inductance ribbon bonds, while gold backside
metallization allows for manual or automatic chip
bonding via 80/20 - Au/Sn, 62/36/2 - Sn/Pb/Ag
solders or electrically conductive silver epoxy.
These high performance switches are suitable for
use in multi-band ECM, Radar, and instrumentation
control circuits where high isolation to insertion loss
ratios are required. With a standard +5 V / -5 V, TTL
controlled PIN diode driver, 80 ns switching speeds
can be achieved.
