Dow-Key Microwave has invested in R&D for new RF switch products designed specifically to reduce intermodulation (IM) in coaxial switches.

The white paper focuses on defining Passive Intermodulation and the concerns around PIM. It also discusses the cause of PIM in both general terms and in switches, while also providing a solution for systems with low PIM requirements.
