Low-power, high-ESD switch available in miniature SC-70 package

Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation has announced the availability of the SPDT PE42421 RF switch, which is available in a miniature, 6-lead SC-70 package.  

With its small package size, strong ESD performance of 2kV on the RFC port, low voltage support down to 1.8V VDD, and low power consumption of
9 microamperes (typ.), the new switch is well suited for battery-powered portable applications, as well as automotive-telematics applications, such as vehicle entry systems and emergency calls.
The 50 Ohm, reflective UltraCMOS switch features high linearity of 50 dBm IIP3 and on-chip, low-voltage CMOS control logic. It can be controlled using either single-pin or complementary-control inputs.  Additionally, the switch features low insertion loss of 0.35 dB @ 1.0 GHz and 0.50 dB @ 2.0 GHz, with high isolation of  30 dB @ 1 GHz and 20 dB @ 2 GHz.  Using a nominal +3V power-supply voltage, a typical input 1 dB compression point of +33.5 dBm can be achieved.
