PE42723 High Linearity RF Switch

The PE42723 is an RF switch that boasts the highest linearity specifications on the market today. An upgraded version of the successful PE42722, this new RF switch offers enhanced performance in a smaller package. Like its predecessor, the PE42723 exceeds the linearity requirements of the DOCSIS 3.1 cable industry standard and enables a dual upstream/downstream band architecture in cable customer premises equipment (CPE) devices.

Covering a frequency range of 5-1794 MHz, the UltraCMOS PE42723 is a reflective SPDT RF switch that delivers high linearity and exceptional harmonic performance. At 17 MHz, the second harmonic is -121 dBc and the third harmonic is -140 dBc. The switch’s low insertion loss, 0.3 dB at 1218 MHz, preserves noise figure and receiver sensitivity and achieves superior signal quality, along with providing high isolation of 54 dB at 204 MHz. The PE42723 features 3 kV ESD protection on all pins and is offered in a small 12-lead 3 x 3 mm QFN package. View product details.
