Low frequency operation of HMC536

Hi,

I have a requirement for a switch that works down to a 10kHz. I am looking at the HMC536MS8G or HMC536LP2 but there is no typical and power de-rated data or graphs for IL, IP3, P1dB, max RF input to show the performance between 9kHz and 1MHz.

 

The reason I ask is that power de-rating of IP3, P1DB, and max RF input can be very significant for RF switches between 10kHz and 1MHz (typically on the order of -20 to -25 dB less than specs given for frequencies above 10MHz) and I would need to know this information before selecting the HMC536 part. I would like to use this Analog Devices but without this information I would need to select a competitor's part since their datasheet provides graphs of IP3, P1DB and max RF which I need. If you can provide data that would be very helpful.

 

Thank you
