Abstract

A radio frequency (RF) antenna switch (136) and associated method of operating the same is provided for switching between a first antenna (109) and asecond antenna (111). A first mixer (125) has an input terminal (124) coupled to the first antenna (109) and has an output terminal (126). A second mixer (129) has an input terminal (128) coupled to the second antenna (11) and has an output terminal (130) coupled to the output terminal of the first mixer (125). The first mixer (125) and the second mixer (129) are alternatively enabled responsive to the state of an antenna select signal (141). Additionally, the common output terminals (126, 130) of both the first mixer (125) and the second mixer (129) are matched to a first intermediate frequency stage (131). The RF antenna switch (136) advantageously provides low loss and low current drain. <IMAGE>
