What is RF switch:
The RF device used to route or switch the RF (Radio Frequency) Signal between the ports is known as RF Switch. RF switches are widely used for many applications in mobile and fixed wireless devices, in switch over units at hub station, for test and measurement and so on. Refer RF switch application notes>> and RF switch working>> for more information.

The figure-1 depicts use of RF switch to share the same single RF antenna between the transmitter and receiver.

RF Switch Types

As shown in the figure-2, RF switches are categorized into electro-mechanical and solid state types. The solid state RF switches are further divided into PIN diode, FET and Hybrid types. Based on architecture there are two types of RF switches viz. absorptive and reflective.

Following table lists popular manufacturers or vendors of RF switch.
