There are many components in an RF system. Most people consider the mixers, filters, amplifiers and antennas to be the most important parts of a radio frequency system. However, there is another component whose importance is often undervalued and that is the RF switch. An RF switch is used to route radio frequency signals through alternative transmission paths.RF switches play a crucial role in the successful design of RF systems.Switches are used to change the routing of radio frequency signals. There are three main factors that should be considered when evaluating RF switches: insertion loss, isolation and switching speed. […]
