The series PSP single-pole, single-throw (SPST) PIN switch covers 18 to 100 GHz in seven waveguide bands. Full waveguide bandwidth is available up to 75 GHz. The available bandwidth is 10 GHz in the range of 75 to 100 GHz. The standard switching speed is 150 ns (typical) from isolation to PASS state and 20 ns from insertion loss state to isolation. The insertion loss is 1.2 dB (max) in K-Band, and increases to 2.2 dB (max) in W-Band. The standard isolation is 30 dB in K-Band, and drops to 20 dB in W-Band. PSP is a reflective device

The series PSH high speed, single-pole, single-throw (SPST) PIN switch covers 18 to 95 GHz in seven waveguide bands. The switch covers full waveguide band up to 40 GHz. The bandwidth drops to 5 GHz at 95 GHz. The standard switching speed is 2 ns (max) with a driver propagation delay of 8 ns (typical). It is available with or without an integral driver. Isolation levels range from 30 dB in K-Band to 18 dB in W-Band. PSH is a reflective device.

The series PDT single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) PIN switch covers 18 to 100 GHz in seven waveguide bands. Full waveguide bandwidth is available up to 75 GHz. The available bandwidth is 10 GHz in the range of 60 to 100 GHz. The standard switching speed is 300 ns (typical) from isolation to PASS state and 20 ns from insertion loss state to isolation. The insertion loss is 1.8 dB (max) in K-Band, and increases to 3 dB (max) in W-Band. The isolation is 22 dB in K-Band and drops to 18 dB in W-Band. Series PDT is available in “Y” configurations. WR-28 and WR-10 models are also available in “in-line” configurations. PDT is a reflective device.

The series VCA voltage-controlled variable attenuator covers 18 to 100 GHz in seven waveguide bands. This attenuator offers an attenuation dynamic range of 25 dB up to 50 GHz, and 20 dB at 100 GHz. Series VCA is also offered in a high attenuation version, in which the attenuation dynamic range is 25 to 40 dB, depending upon the frequency. However insertion loss is slightly higher. VCA is a reflective device.
