Ducommun RF Products has been actively working with our individual customers to develop unique testing solutions with our Switch Matrices and coaxial switches. Ducommun RF Products has over twenty five years experience with the design and manufacturing of switch matrix systems. Combining together our technical knowledge of both coaxial switches and switching systems, we have been able to assist our customers with a variety of solution that fit their unique requirements. Ducommun RF Products offers a complete, fully supported, turnkey solution that allows our customers to have the benefit of a customized solution at a fraction of the price.
The new wireless network surveillance system from Corry Micronics comprises the RFMS-2x8*8 8 Channel Matrix with a Probe Port and two CMIATT-4CH-200W 100 W Attenuator banks. It is capable of a range of configurations ranging from one port to over 48 ports. The 8-channel RF matrix switch is designed with a probe/test port where the signal analysis occurs. The 8-channel switch is bi-directional enabling testing in both directions. System frequencies can be customized to the end user’s specifications.
ETL Systems presents the new 64 x 64 L-Band Hurricane Matrix customized to meet exact RX chain requirements for applications within the 850-2450 MHz frequency range. The unique design allows for the selection of input modules that exactly match teleport or broadcaster requirements. Each input port can be tailored with its own modules including fiber L-band input, LNB powering, variable gain / slope compensation, and RF level detection.
The 60-750/751 is an LXI Microwave Switching platform controlled through an LXI compliant Ethernet connection. The matrix is available in a variety of configurations and frequencies up to 20 GHz and features a “Loop Through” option to create even larger matrices.
Corry Micronics’ RFMS-4X256-B is a 4 to 256 blocking RF switch matrix covering the 900-2500 MHz frequency range. It has a -8dB insertion loss, 50 ohms impedance, 10 dB return loss, +30 dBm P1dB, -80 dB isolation, and a 5µs switching speed (50% trigger to 10% RF power).
A blocking RF switch matrix can achieve high levels of isolation and lower levels of insertion loss because of their internal switches (which exhibit high isolation and low loss characteristics). They’re the simplest type of available RF switch matrix configurations.
