  • Publication number: 20180287266
    Abstract: Illustrative embodiments significantly improve RF isolation in a packaged integrated circuit by separating the pins/pads associated with multiple RF channels from one another and also from pins/pads associated with digital circuits. Specifically, in certain exemplary embodiments, the integrated circuit is configured with the pins/pad for the digital circuits on a first edge of the chip, the pins/pads for common RF signals on a second edge of the chip opposite the first edge, and the pins/pads for the individual RF channels on third and fourth edges of the chip. The pins/pads associated with each RF channel may include multiple pins/pads (an “RF group”) and may have a central RF pin/pad with a ground pin/pad on each side of the central RF pin/pad. One or more ground pins/pads may be placed between adjacent RF groups on a given edge of the chip.

  • Patent number: 6998935
    Abstract: A switch matrix including a plurality of microstrip pairs arranged to form a grid and switches to couple the microstrip pairs where they cross. Each microstrip pair includes a first microstrip and a second microstrip for passing signals. The signals on the first and second microstrips are such that the electromagnetic forces produced by each one are canceled out by the other. By canceling out the electromagnetic forces, undesirable coupling between microstrips that cross and between microstrips and the substrate are minimized, thereby allowing inexpensive substrates such as silicon to be used.

  • Patent number: 6984870
    Abstract: A high-speed cross-point switch is built on a preferably silicon substrate and uses bipolar transistor switching elements. Preferably, the bipolar transistors are SiGe bipolar junction transistors. Intersecting conductive input and output microstrips are preferably thinned at their intersections to reduce shunt capacitance between the coupled lines. It is also preferred that the input buffer be connected in cascode fashion with the switching transistors in order to create an amplification stage. The signal and its inverse are carried on balanced microstrip pairs in order to reduce electromagnetic field strength at the center of the balanced line pairs thereby improving isolation between two crossing balanced pairs.
