RF switches are used extensively in wireless systems for signal routing finding wide use in switching signals from antennas to the transmit and receive chains. They are one of the highest volume RF devices in use today as several devices are typically contained in a block diagram. RF switches fall into the two main categories of electromechanical and solid-state switches. While electromechanical switches have not found wide use in RF applications since the PIN diode was developed, they are making some new in-roads in certain applications in the form of micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) devices. Solid state switches are typically more reliable and exhibit longer lifetime than electromechanical switches plus offer faster switching times. However, solid-state switches typically have higher intrinsic ON resistance and more harmonic distortion than mechanical switches. Solid state switches: There are two main types of solid state switches: field-effect transistors (FETs) and PIN diodes.
With the increasing in production capacity, expected that the RF switches raw material price will be stable in the short term. However, the improvement of energy, transportation costs, and labor costs, will play a significant role in promoting the cost of RF switches.
There are companies aims at the cost and quality leadership which shall improve profitability. As the same time, companies are focusing on technological innovation, equipment upgrades, and process improvements, to reduce costs and improve quality.
The average price of RF switches will fall further. The product average price declined in the past few years due to the technology development, the average price will keep this trend in the few future years due to increasing mature manufacturing technology, cost of raw materials, as well as the substitute threat.
