Matrix Switches


Dow-Key Microwave Corporation is pleased to present its new Matrix/PXI Catalog, which introduces the most popular, standard, and integrated switching solutions required in today’s broadband market -- everything from solid-state to electromechanical and reconfigurable PXI module switching systems.
Dow-Key Microwave, a leader in the design and manufacture of switching products, acquired its Matrix line in 1999. Since that time, the line has expanded to include both standard and custom matrices supporting the aerospace, military and communication industries for both signal routing and ATE applications.
Dow-Key Microwave provides a reconfigurable CANBus-based integrated switch matrix (P/N 13D12-480822T) equipped with a built-in ethernet port. This switch matrix is based on the well-established standard design of the SP12T switch with internal termination

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).

The L-Band matrix distributes 8 L-band signals to 8 receivers in the frequency range 950 … 2150 MHz without any blocking.

Dow-Key Microwave offers a CANbus-based Coaxial Switch Matrix system with Ethernet, GPIB, RS-232, RS-485, and CANbus control interfaces. The system performs from 300 MHz to 1 GHz and is configured as an 8X8 Full Fan-Out Switch Matrix

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.

Dow-Key Microwave’s Solid Switch Matrix with Ethernet control interface, performs from 800 to 2500 MHz and is available in full fan-out configurations from 6X6 to 12X12
