    • 24dB Crosstalk Isolation at 900MHz
    • +27dBm Output P1dB

    Qorvo's RF2436 is a very low-cost transmit/receive GaAs MESFET switch. The device can handle power levels as high as +28dBm and spans a frequency range from DC to 2500MHz. The switch will operate from power supply voltages as low as 1.5V and as high as 6V with a CMOS logic driver for the control input. No negative voltage is required and current consumption is very low. VSWR for the active channel (transmit or receive) is 1.1:1. The device is housed in a very small industry-standard SOT 5-lead plastic package.
