CEL introduces CG series of SPDT RF switches

January 17, 2017 - CEL introduced a variety of RF switches that have been designed as easy drop in replacements for a wide range of existing RF products as well as for new designs. Target markets include test and measurement systems as well as Wi-Fi, ZigBee and Bluetooth routers, sensors, appliances, and other radio equipped products.

RF (Radio Frequency) and microwave switches are used to route high frequency signals through transmission paths. They come in different configurations, providing the flexibility to create matrices and automated test systems for many different applications. Typical switch options include:  Single-pole-double-throw (SPDT or 1:2) switches that route signals from one input to two output paths. Multiport or single-pole-multiple-throw (SPnT) switches that allow a single input to multiple (three or more) output paths. Double-pole-double-throw (DPDT) switches can be used to switch between two inputs and two outputs

These RF Switches operate over frequency ranges through 6GHz and are drop-in compatible to various existing Renesas RF Switch products.

Some of these new switches include:

  • CG2179MT (SPDT), general purpose RF switch
  • CG2214M6 (SDPT) general purpose RF switch with low insertion loss
  • CG2185X2 (SPDT) compact wideband RF switch for WLAN applications
  • CG2163X3 (SPDT) Wideband RF switch for WLAN providing high isolation features
  • CG2415M6 (SPDT) Wideband RF switch for WLAN that features medium power and high isolation
  • CG2430X1 (SP3T) Wideband RF switch for WLAN and Bluetooth
  • CG2176X3 (Absorptive SPDT) High Power, Wideband RF Switch for WLAN
