Looking through the datasheet for this component shows that it is DC coupled. I am planning on connecting several of these back to back. Will I need to worry about having a DC blocking capacitor in between each switch or is this not necessary?
There will not be any DC MMIC bias anywhere on the RF line.
Another concern is that I received this email from firstname.lastname@example.org when I queried the HMC986:
"HMC986 is not recommended for new design."
Could someone please elaborate as to why this is?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
