Title: High-frequency switch

Abstract: A high-frequency switch is constructed by connecting a first diode and a second diode that function as switching elements, inductors, capacitors, and resistors. One end of the resistor is connected between the first diode and the second diode, and the other end of the resistor is connected to the ground. Thus, charges accumulated in the diodes in the ON states are immediately released to ground via the resistor. Accordingly, quick switching from the transmission mode to the reception mode by switching of a control power supply terminal from ON to OFF is achieved.
