Hey Adam, just one more little question: Do i need to terminate my differential lines coming from a 50 Ohm source interfacing with the TS3L110? So for instance a 100 Ohm differential termination at the TS3L110 input. My maximum frequency is 100MHz. i am still not sure I understand how the switch works, assuming it would only work as a resistor (Ron approx. 8 Ohm) I would not need termination. But I hardly believe that. But on the other hand, i don't see any datasheet entry for input or uptut resistance... so what is this black magic switch? ;) bestr regards Benjamin
Here are a few resources to help you understand how passive FET switches perform their black magic.
Below are some excerpts from Selecting the Right Texas Instruments Signal Switch

Let me know if you have other questions about solid state signal switch black magic. I may be working on updating some of this material and may be able to help point out what is not clear about these documents.
