Pickering Interfaces is expanding its range of 3U PXI microwave switch solutions with the introduction of the 40-784 which supports one or two microwave switches in 2 slots of 3U PXI.
It is available in two configurations and three frequency ranges. The available configurations are un-terminated 4 way (SP4T) and 6 way (SP6T) multiplexers, each configuration is available with a 6GHz, 26.5GHz or 40GHz specified frequency range.
The 6GHz/26.5GHz configurations feature extended life of 10 million operations per position.
The two slot PXI occupancy allows test system designers to provide dense solutions to solve dense microwave switching problems. The 40-784 can be supported by any PXI compliant 3U PXI chassis and is supported by Pickering Interfaces Modular LXI chassis’ for applications requiring Ethernet based control.
