Model 2629 Low Cost SP6T Switch

Application Notes for RF Switches

Model 2629 is a Low Cost high-performance terminated SP6T switch that operates over the full instantaneous bandwidth of 1 to 18 GHz with ON and OFF times of 500 nsec. The Model 2629 is equipped with an integrated driver that is powered by +5 and -12 volt supplies. The proper currents required to switch the ports ON or OFF are provided by the driver, which is controlled by external logic signals.
