Pickering Interfaces is expanding its range of PXI RF switching solutions with the introduction of a new range of high-performance, high-density RF switching solutions. Four new RF switching modules have been introduced, each having high performance switching characteristics to 3GHz and are usable to 3.5GHz

The 40-870 model provides up to six off SPDT switches in a single width 3U PXI module. The 40-872 provides up to 4 off 4 way MUX's in a single slot 3U PXI module. The 40-874 provides one or two 8-way mux in a single slot 3U PXI module. The 40-877 provides a single or dual 2x2 matrix with loop through connections that permit larger matrices to be simply constructed.

All the new RF modules offer high RF performance to 3GHz with low insertion loss and VSWR that ensure accurate and consistent switching of RF signals in RF test systems. Each module is available in partial build configurations, allowing users to specify the number of switching elements they need, and each is available with a choice of MCX or SMB connectors to simplify system cabling. Switching is performed using high performance EMR relays integrated into a low loss PCB design that minimixes RF losses and VSWR.

The products are available now.
