What kind of RF-switch is recommended for the replacement of the uPG2164 DPDT RF-switch used in most of the Si4x6x-based reference designs?
The RF-switches listed below can be good alternatives to replace the uPG2164 DPDT RF-switch. These switches have approximately the same specifications/characteristics/ratings and footprint as the uPG2164.
Example list of RF switches for the replacement:
The RF switch used in the designs needs to have:
- low insertion loss
- high enough frequency capability
- high isolation
- high enough power capability
- low harmonic re-generation, i.e. low distortion
- small size
