40GHz RF switches

Dow-Key Microwave Corp., part of Dover Corp.'s Microwave Products Group, announced it now offers a complete line of 40GHz RF switches.

Designed to operate with high repeatability for both military and ATE applications, the company said the new product family provides users with a wide selection of 40GHz RF switch options. The line includes SP6T multiposition coaxial switches, DPDT (Transfer) coaxial switches and SPDT coaxial switches.

Standard with 2.9mm RF connectors, according to Dow-Key, all three switch offerings emphasize superior reliability and phase and insertion loss repeatability. The SP6T multiposition RF switch has a switching time of 20ms (max) and is offered with a normally open actuator. It can be equipped with coils designed for 12-, 15-, 24- and 48V. The DPDT (Transfer) coaxial switch also has a switching time of 20ms (max) and features a latching or failsafe actuator. The SPDT coaxial switches have a switching time of 15ms (max) and are offered with a latching or failsafe actuator. All DPDT and SPDT versions are available with actuator coils designed for 12-, 15-, 24- and 28V.

Through its on-site performance and environmental testing labs, the company said it administers final testing of its products utilizing state-of-the-art equipment. Environmental test capabilities include temperature, thermal shock, acceleration, mechanical shock, thermal vacuum and both random and sine vibration. This ensures a reliable, quality, RF switching solution for its customers, said the company. Dow-Key said its innovative design and strict control of the manufacturing processes and quality control ensure that each switch performs within warranty specifications for its entire life.
