Highest RF design flexibility and performance with cost-efficient RF switches for IoT and 5G applications
Digitalization is transforming the global landscape, with wireless communication technologies enhancing connectivity like never before. Most, if not all, industries are benefiting from the faster communication of information supported by radio frequency (RF) technologies such as cellular 4G/5G, WiFi, and Ultra-Wide-Band (UWB). As these communication systems evolve, mobile devices need to operate under challenging environments created by the exposure to an increasing number of frequency bands.
RF switches are widely used for band selection and frequency signal switching between various RF input / output ports. Therefore these components support high quality signal and strength in various applications.
As a leading RF switch manufacturer, Infineon offers an extensive portfolio of RF switch ICs for wireless communication systems, such as cellular 4G / 5G. Our product portfolio is continuously evolving and it provides high performance RF switches that meet stringent technical requirements such as RF power or fast switching speed at reduced supply voltages.
Infineon’s RF switches portfolio includes components with very low Insertion Loss (IL), high isolation (ISO), and low harmonics generation. RF switches are used for band selection and antenna switching of different RF paths within the RF Front-End (RF FE) providing several system benefits such as higher design flexibility, cost, and power savings.
Within our portfolio, we offer high power RF switches that perfectly match technical requirements of electronic devices such as mobile phones featuring cellular communication (4G / 5G). Within this RF switch category, our components provide high power handling capabilities of up to +37dBm and offer ultra-high linearity performance. Here you will find some of our best-selling components such as, high power SPDT RF Switch BGS12P2L6 GPIO controlled and our high power SP4T BGS14MPA9 with MIPI control interface.
As mobile data download is continuously increasing, devices require a higher bandwidth and an additional receiver channel called the diversity path. To select the right receive band, one option is to use a diversity switch with low IL and excellent RF performance. In our RF switch portfolio for the diversity path, you will find various components with excellent IL and value-added features such as cross functionality (see BGSX44MA12). Furthermore, we offer devices with fast switching speed such as BGS12WN6 and BGS14WMA9, GPIO and MIPI controlled respectively. Likewise, take a closer look at our SP3T and SPDT RF Switch offerings for multi-purpose with very competitive RF performance.
Infineon RF switches are easy to design in since we offer very small and compact integrated circuits (ICs) in very robust packages. This makes them a perfect choice for surface mount on PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards). The RF switch portfolio has variety in size and RF performance. Therefore, you will likely find a solution meeting your application requirements. Our target applications include various consumer devices such as, smartphones, laptops, tablets, wearables, drones, access points (routers, customer premises equipment / CPE), and various smart home appliances.
