Pickering Interfaces has expanded its range of LXI-compliant switching products with the introduction of the 60-750 and 60-751 LXI Microwave matrix.

The 60-750 is available as a single or dual 4-by-4 matrix with optional loop thru and terminated versions. The 60-751 20GHz version is offered as a single 4-by-4 matrix. An 8-by-4 matrix configuration is available for the 60-750 to 10GHz.

The 60-750 and 60-751 provide a compact solution for microwave switching applications, occupying just 2U of rack space. The LXI compliant interface provides a simple and effective method of controlling the matrix through a web browser or through the programmatic interface that supports most software programming environments.

The matrices can be supplied with options for internal termination of unused inputs and loop thru connections for easy matrix expansion.

An auxiliary output allows the 60-750/751 to control and supply power to external relays or loads.

The 60-750/751 are the first in a range of Pickering Interfaces microwave switching products to be made available with LXI compliant control interfaces. "The LXI format is ideal for creating microwave switching solutions," according to David Owen, business development manager for Pickering Interfaces. "The mechanical and electrical freedom of the LXI standard allows us to implement microwave switching solutions, which are either difficult or impossible to achieve economically in other platforms. The 60-750 offers a more compact and cost effective solution than our PXI or VXI equivalents."

The 60-750 and 60-751 can be supplied in other switching configurations.
