Pickering Interfaces has expanded its LXI-compliant switching products with the 60-800 and 60-820 microwave mux platforms.

The 60-800 and 60-820 each support up to 16 six-channel microwave muxes in a compact 2U form factor. The 60-800 supports 50次 muxes with a bandwidth of 20GHz using SMA connectors while the 60-820 supports 75次 muxes with a bandwidth of 2.5GHz using DIN1.6/5.6 connectors.

The form factor of this product allows for more efficient use of rack space when compared to fitting microwave muxes in a PXI environment. Use of the 60-800 or 60-820 saves PXI slots for other instruments, potentially eliminating the need for additional PXI chassis.

The LXI Class C compliant interface allows the 60-800 and 60-820 to be remotely controlled via its Ethernet port through a web browser or by the programmatic interface. The LXI provides a Java-based soft front-panel application that allows the user to control the switching matrix without driver installation and configuration.

Versions of the 60-800 and 60-820 can be ordered with different bandwidths and connector styles.
