PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

AR offers the SC2000 modular RF switch control platform designed for use in a variety of switching applications in RF systems. Each of the main chassis is equipped with five, rear-facing, user-configurable slots which can be populated with SCM series modules.

The RFMS8X8-1-18GNB is an 8 input and 8 output non-blocking RF matrix switch that allows any of the 8 inputs to be routed to any or all the 8 outputs.  The unit operates over the frequency range of 1 GHz to 18 GHz and has signal gain, frequency compensation and controlled path lengths.  These features provide minimal signal loss, minimal frequency response variations and matched time delay between paths. 

The SKY13351-378LF is a pHEMT GaAs FET I/C switch operating in the 20 MHz to 6.0 GHz frequency range. This single-pole double-throw (SPDT) switch features positive voltage control, very low insertion loss, high isolation, and excellent linearity performance. Typical applications include many wireless applications such as use in WLAN 802.11 a/b/g/n networks, WLAN repeaters, ISM band radios, and low power transmit receive systems.

The SKY5A1007 by Skyworks is a state-of-the-art CMOS, silicon-on-insulator (SOI) double-pole, double-throw (DPDT) switch. Including automotive, cellular telematics, and cellular compensator 5G applications, the switch provides high-linearity performance, low insertion loss, and high isolation.

Corry Micronics has developed an 8 x 8 Non-Blocking Switch Matrix that allows any of the 8 inputs to be routed to any or all of the 8 outputs.

The 50S-2133 SMA from JFW is a solid-state, self-terminating 1P8T RF switch designed for economical automated RF testing applications in the 20 – 5,000 MHz frequency range.

Mini Circuits offers a series of “full fan-out” or “fully non-blocking” matrices using a combination of programmable attenuators and splitters/combiners that deliver a flexible set of paths between the input and output ports. The configuration is analogous to a switch matrix except any individual path can be “on” (0 dB attenuation), or “off” (max attenuation), or any specific path loss in-between.

JFW offers the 75MS-029 75 Ohm blocking matrix switch that operates from 3 – 1000 MHz. This switch can be used to fan-out connections from a 2-port 75 Ohm network analyzer to allow for automated multi-port 75 Ohm testing.
