Clacton on Sea, United KingdomPickering Interfaces has introduced high-density RF modules that provide switching characteristics to 3-GHz.
The 40-870 provides up to six off SPDT switches in a single width 3U PXI module. The 40-872 provides up to four off four-way MUXs in a single slot 3U PXI module. The 40-874 provides one or two eight-way MUXs in a single slot 3U PXI module. The 40-877 provides a single or dual 2x2 matrix with loop thru connections that permit larger matrices to be simply constructed.
All the RF modules offer RF performance to 3-GHz with low insertion loss and VSWR that ensure accurate and consistent switching of RF signals in RF test systems.
Each module is available in partial build configurations, allowing users to specify the number of switching elements needed. Each is available with a choice of MCX or SMB connectors to simplify system cabling.
Switching is performed using high performance EMR relays that have been carefully chosen and integrated into a low loss PCB design that minimizes RF losses and VSWR.
