Compact 409 PCB Mount Switch
The compact 409 operates at a frequency range of DC to 3.0 GHz. The new 409 switch, which is specially designed for mounting directly on a PCB, is suitable for military, ATE and commercial applications that require higher power handling and greater resistance to severe environmental conditions.
Newly Introduced Family of 40GHz RF Switches
Designed to operate with high repeatability for both military and ATE applications, the newly introduced family of products provides users with a selection of 40 GHz RF switch options. The 40 GHz line includes SP6T Multiposition Coaxial Switches, DPDT (Transfer) Coaxial Switches, and SPDT Coaxial Switches.
SPDT Latching Switch
Created in direct response to the demand for longer life mechanical switches in the ATE market, the SPDT latching switch features an operating life of 5 million cycles. It is available in a frequency range of DC to 26.5 GHz. This unit is available with actuator coils designed for 12, 15, 24, or 28 volt operation.
