General Description
The HMC344LC3 is a broadband non-reflective GaAs
MESFET SP4T switch in a ceramic 3x3 mm leadless
surface mount package. Covering DC to 8 GHz, this
switch offers high isolation and low insertion loss. The
HMC344LC3 includes an integrated binary decoder
circuit which reduces the required logic control
lines to two. The switch operates using a negative
control voltage of 0/-5V, and requires a fixed bias of
-5V. Simple external level shifting circuitry allows this
switch to be controlled with most TTL/CMOS positive
logic families.

The circuit board used in the application should
be generated with proper RF circuit design techniques. Signal lines at the RF port should have 50
ohm impedance and the package ground leads
and backside ground slug should be connected
directly to the ground plane similar to that shown
above. The evaluation circuit board shown above is
available from Hittite Microwave Corporation upon
request.
