In this document, Agilent Technologies describes how to configure a 12-port custom switch box with the L4491A RF/Microwave switch platform. It also outlines the basic procedure for operating the custom switch box using the E5061B ENA Series network analyzer.

For a switch box using SP6T switches, the box is designed using an Agilent 50- network analyzer such as the E5061B with Option 235. However, because a 75- multiport switch box solution has wider application, such as for CATV passive component measurements, this document describes how to configure a custom 75- multiport switch box. The custom switch box uses mechanical coaxial switches and can be operated by the E5061B network analyzer via GPIB or LAN.

The custom switch box provides the ability to make a single connection and obtain multiple measurements of multiport devices. This increases throughput by reducing the number of device reconnects that operators need to perform.
