The CGY2890SUH/C1 is a high performance GaAs MMIC Single Pole Double Throw (SPDT) switch operating from 6 up to 18 GHz. The device has a low insertion across the operating frequency range. It is part of OMMIC's new 6 - 18 GHz chipset that is dedicated to radar, telecommunication, instrumentation applications.
The die is manufactured using ED02AH OMMIC's 180 nm gate length pHEMT technology. The MMIC uses gold bonding pads and backside metallization and is fully protected with silicon nitride passivation to obtain the highest level of reliability. This process has been evaluated for space applications and is on the European Preferred Parts List of European Space Agency (ESA).
