A monolithic FET switch is described that can be integrated with other monolithic functions or used as a discrete component in a microwave integrated circuit structure. This device increases the power-handling capability of the conventional single FET switch by an order of magnitude. It does this by overcoming the breakdown voltage limitation of the FET device. The design, fabrication and performance of two high-power control components using these circuits are described as examples of the implementation of this technology. They are an L-band terminated single-pole, single-throw (SPST) switch and an L-band limiter
