Low PIM coaxial switch offers linear response and high power capability

June 02, 2014 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Passive Intermodulation (PIM) is critical in today's market where multiple frequencies are transmitted simultaneously in wireless communications and higher data rates. To address this issue, Teledyne Coax Switches has introduced the Series CCP-47D low PIM coax switch.

The CCP-47D is a broadband TRANSFER, electromechanical coaxial switch designed to switch microwave signals similar to a DPDT switch. The CCP-47D comes standard with 7/16th DIN Connectors designed to achieve IP3 levels of -165 dBc with two carrier signals at +43 dBm.

The CCP-47 Series is ideal for switching high RF power or high sensitivity signals. The company's low PIM CCP-47 Series ensures the most linear response with excellent a galvanically matched contact system. The switch can handle up to 200 W CW at 3 GHz and has superior RF performance such as Isolation of 70 dB minimum at 3 GHz. The company's TRANSFER design claims to offer the most reliable, and insertion loss repeatable switches.

The CCP-47D measures 8.89 x 8.89 x 9.30 cm (3.50 x 3.50 x 3.66 inches) and has a maximum weight of 170.1 g.
