Overview

The 40-781A-422 (PXI) and 42-781A-422 (PXIe) are dual SPDT 40GHz microwave relay modules with internal terminations. The 40/42-781A range is available with one or two SPDT switches capable of switching frequencies up to 50GHz in 50Ω. They are available with either internal or external terminations and connections are via front panel mounted high quality SMA, SMA 2.9 or SMA 2.4 connectors.

These PXI/PXIe Microwave relay modules give you the highest RF and microwave switching performance available within a Pickering switching system. Although designed for microwave applications, they have many uses in the RF spectrum where extremely low insertion loss and ultra high isolation are critical. They may also be used for lower
frequency RF applications where power handling to 240W (without termination) is required.
