Abstract : Five samples of the RF desensitized PNPN switch were evaluated. The units were first tested to determine dc and low frequency characteristics. Following these tests each unit was packaged as a protective device and tested to determine RF operating characteristics. Quantities measured directly were input impedance of the connected inert MK-1 squib (ZL). transfer impedance (Zp) and/or voltage attenuation. These data were used to compute the evaluation parameters Power Attenuation (PA) and minimum possible Insertion Loss (ILr). (Author)
