I am working on a high speed data aquistion system. The low power RF signal of interest is DC coupled and therefore I was thinking of using the HMC544A as a switch. The datasheet looked promising (DC - 4GHz) until I have found the section that DC blocks are required. Using DC block capacitors is not an option. Would it be worth a try to leave out the DC blocks?
Thanks and best regards,
thanks for your help!
I checked with my system and the following conditions will apply:
- DC voltage level of RF signal --> up to 1.5V
- Minimum frequency of operation --> Down to 0Hz
- Maximum RF signal power --> Max. 17dBm
I hope this will help you.
Thanks in advance for your help!
