The datasheet specifies a maximum power handling of +36 dBm, Based on my evaluation of the switch it appears this number is driven by maximum power in the closed state while conducting. Is there an alternative, higher specification for power handling in the open state while blocking (not hot switching)? My evaluation seems to indicate the the open power rating which should be limited by cantilever pull-in or arcing may be several dBm higher than the 36 dBm maximum figure.
ADGM1304 is only qualified to pass 36dbm maximum RF power. Unfortunately I cannot suggest you any alternative specification for max RF power as passing more than 36dBm RF power will impact the lifetime of the ADGM1304.
Thank you for your prompt reply,
I believe you may have misunderstood my question, I understand the the ADGM1304 is only qualified to pass +36 dBm, but is there data available specifically about blocking RF power, i.e. when RF1, 2, 3, 4 are all open and not connected to RFC? Is this value also specified as +36 dBm, or is another value specified for blocking power?
When all the switches are open ADGM1304 can only stand off +/-10V DC or 30dBm RF power.
