Sunnyvale, Calif.Maxim Integrated Products has introduced the MAX4996 and MAX4996L triple double-pull/double-throw (DPDT) switches for multiplexing high-frequency signals up to 670MHz.
To enable high-frequency switching, these switches feature low on-resistance (2.0 ohms, typ), low on-capacitance (6pF, typ), and low power consumption (3 microamps, typ). Additionally, the MAX4996 and MAX4996L provide three logic inputs to control the switches in pairs. Consuming 10 microamps (max) supply current when the logic inputs are not rail-to-rail, these switches are well suited for applications that must interface directly with low-voltage processors.
The high-frequency switching of the MAX4996 and MAX4996L enables multiplexing SDHC (SD 2.0) and SDIO interfaces, making these devices ideal for portable applications such as cell phones, PDAs, and portable media players.
Available in a 3.5mm x 3.5mm, 24-pin TQFN package, the MAX4996/MAX4996L operate from a 2.5V to 5.5V supply-voltage range and are fully specified over the -40°C to +85°C extended temperature range.
Pricing: Starts at $1.80 (1000-up, FOB USA).
