M/A-COM’s MASWSS0166 is a GaAs monolithic
switch in a lead-free SOT-363 surface mount plastic
package. The MASWSS0166 is ideally suited for
applications where very low power consumption, low
insertion loss, very small size and low cost are re-
Negative Control Voltage
Typical applications are dual band systems that re-
quire switching between small signal components
such as filter banks, single band LNA’s and convert-
ers. The MASWSS0166 can be used in applications
up to 0.25 Watts in systems such as cellular, PCS,
DCS1800, GSM, CDMA, W-CDMA and other ana-
log/digital wireless communications systems.
The MASWSS0166 is fabricated using a mature 0.5
micron GaAs PHEMT process. The process fea-
tures full passivation for increased performance and
