LXI Wideband Modular Matrix

  • 200MHz bandwidth usable to 500MHz
  • 50Ω impedance
  • User configurable for X and Y dimensions
  • High performance EMR design
  • Excellent crosstalk performance and wide bandwidth
  • Self-test facility to check all relays
  • LXI compliant interface for simple Ethernet based control

Pickering's LXI wideband modular matrix (model #65-110) offers you a solution that can be easily reconfigured by the removal and insertion of sub-cards. The unit is purchased as an empty chassis with a baseboard and the quantity of sub-cards initially required - as your requirements evolve, additional cards can be easily fitted and the control software automatically detects the new configuration.
