PE42422 Evaluation Kit
EK42422-01 Evaluation Kit for the UltraCMOS® SPDT RF Switch PE42422
The SPDT switch evaluation board was designed to ease customer evaluation of the PE42422. The RF common port is connected through a 50Ω transmission line via the top SMA connector, J2. RF1 and RF2 ports are connected through 50Ω transmission lines via SMA connectors J1 and J3, respectively. A through 50Ω transmission is available via SMA connectors J4 and J5. This transmission line can be used to estimate the loss of the PCB over the environmental conditions being evaluated. J8 provides DC and digital inputs to the device.
The board is constructed of a four metal layer material with a total thickness of 62 mils. The top and bottom RF layers are Rogers RO4350 material with a 10 mil RF core. The middle layers provide ground for the transmission lines. The transmission lines were designed using a coplanar waveguide with ground plane model using a trace width of 22 mils, trace gaps of 7 mils, and metal thickness of 2.1 mils.
