Abstract (en)

A composite switch circuit (30) for alternately and electrically connecting a first circuit (Tx) to a third circuit (ANT) or a second circuit (Rx) to said third circuit (ANT). The composite switch circuit (30) is incorporated with a low pass filter circuit (LPF) in the switch circuit portion of the composite switch circuit (30) so as to create a highly symmetrical circuit configuration. The composite switch circuit (30) is disposed on a plurality of dielectric substrates (22-28) of a integral multi-layer body (2) to provide a miniaturised composite switch device. Since the composite switch device including the composite switch circuit (30) with a symmetrical circuit configuration shows a low insertion loss and a high performance in a broad frequency range, the composite switch device is advantageously used to form a portion of a radio transceiver such as a cellular radiotelephone. <IMAGE>
