Skyworks has introduced two SPDT 75 Ohm switches that are ideal for set-top box and DVR applications.

The SKY13547-490LF and SKY13548-385LF feature ultra-high linearity and meet the rigorous requirements of DOCSIS 3.0/3.1 applications. They also boast very low insertion loss and high power handling capability. The switches are fully integrated and internally matched, reducing bill of material costs for customers.

The SPDT switches are available in compact 1- x 1- x 0.45-mm and 2- x 2- x 0.55-mm packages, saving precious application board space and cost for OEMs. These devices can also be used for terrestrial and cable set-top box, cable modem and home gateway, personal video recorder (PVR) and digital video recorder (DVR) applications.
