Notes:
1. VSWR is 2.3:1 maximum from 20.0 to 26.5 GHz.
2. Defined as 50% TTL input to 90% detected RF change including SMT driver delay.
Rise and fall times typically less than 10 nsec (20 nsec max.).
3. Switching speed for medium speed option is 100 nsec max. Replace "F" in model
number with "M." For example, "SFS0540-XXX" would become "SMS0540-XXX."
