• HMC641ALC4 Maximum input power


    I have a question about maximum input power at Hot Switching of HMC641ALC4. As for HMC641ALP4E, the maximum input power at Hot Switching is defined in the ABSOLUTE MAXIMUM RATING of the datasheet. On the other hand, as for HMC641ALC4, it is not…

  • Blocking caps for HMC641ALC4

    The HMC641ALC4 datasheet states that blocking caps are required on the HMC641ALC4 inputs if the RF line potential is not equal to 0V, yet the part is specified down to DC.

    What does AD mean by "RF line potential" and what value of blocking cap would…

  • RE: Queries about HMC641LC4 vs HMC641ALC4


    Hi Wayne,

    The HMC641LC4 will be obsolete due to foundry/process discontinuation and replaced by the HMC641ALC4. The HMC641ALC4 was designed in a similar process from different foundry by targeting functional drop-in replacement of the HMC641LC4. The…

  • RE: I am using the HMC641 SP4T switch in a new design. A parameter of interest to me is Output to output isolation. This is not explicit in the data sheet (although may be implied by the common to output on/off ratio). The downloaded s5p file indicates...

    H John,

    Sorry for the late reply to this inquiry. As discussed in my separate email to you earlier, the HMC641LC4 is not recommended for new design and will soon be replaced by our released HMC641ALC4. Attached is the de-embedded s5p files for the HMC641ALC4…
