Abstract : A high isolation electronic switch is provided for selectively switching an output line between first and second input lines. Each input line is connected to a respective circuit that has a first current carrying path to connect the respective input line to the output line, and a second current carrying path to connect a portion of the first current carrying path of the respective circuit to a ground potential. Each respective circuit is further selectively operated to conduct along only one of its first or second current carrying paths. A unity gain buffer is connected serially in the first current carrying path of each respective circuit. The switch is selectively operated such that one circuit conducts along its first current carrying path when the other circuit is conducting along its second current carrying path.
