Pin Diode Switches

MCLI also offers high speed switching solution through our pin diode switch line. MCLI pin diode switches are offered in many multiport models up to SP8T (single pole eight throw) that feature high isolation, low insertion loss, and fast switching times up to 100 nanoseconds. Absorptive models incorporate a 50 ohm terminations in each of the output ports, to present a low VSWR in its off position as well as in its on position. Reflective models conduct RF power when the diode is reverse biased and reflect RF power when the switch is forward biased.
