I purchased several SPDT RF switches which manufactured by a Chinese listed company. The chip’s footprint is 1.0mm x 1.0mm x 0.45mm 6-lead QFN package. The manufacturer did not provide S-parameters. Thus, I had to design the fixture and measure the S-parameters by myself.
S55 and S66 are original measurement data, S33 and S44 are de-embedded data:
|S44 is ANT||S33 is RF1||RF1 ENABLED|
The measurement data conform to the Insertion loss and Return loss specifications in datasheet.
|S77 is RF1||S88 is RF2||ANT is terminated with 50 Ohm terminator||RF1 ENABLED|
Unfortunately, the measurement data exceed the isolation specifications in datasheet.
The testing fixture meets my expectation for working within 0GHz to 6GHz. For the isolation, I think the IC may conform to the isolation specifications, because de-embedded algorithm cannot work with crosstalk problem. Crosstalk between the traces RF1 and RF2 on the PCB can downgrade the isolation.
