COMMUNICATIONS & 5G
Next-generation wireless networks need to support dozens more frequency bands and higher carrier frequencies.
The Ideal Switch is perfect for creating high-performance, miniaturized frequency-agile radios from a few MHz to 60GHz, and milliwatts to kilowatts.
Example: Antennas and RF front-ends
RF front-ends and antennas using Ideal Switches will:
- support new 5G bands in addition to all legacy bands
- handle more capacity due to superior linearity
- reduce the need for heavy, bulky mechanical equipment by replacing it with lightweight micromechanical versions
- allow more bands to be supported in a smaller space, creating lighter and smaller radio systems
Our Ideal Switch enables completely new system architectures:
- phase shifters, filters, limiters, amplifiers, antenna tuners…all portions of the radio chain will see step-change improvements.
