This range of PXI microwave transfer switch modules has a characteristic impedance of 50Ω and is available in versions with maximum operating frequencies of 18GHz, 26.5GHz or 40GHz. Connections are made via front panel mounted high quality RF coaxial connectors, SMA or SMA 2.9, depending upon the frequency range.
Transfer switches have four ports with two possible switch states. In the default (de-energized) state, ports 1 to 2 and 3 to 4 have signal paths between them. In the energized state the signal paths are between ports 1 to 3 and 2 to 4 (see diagrams on data sheet).
Applications are mainly in the microwave region, however there are 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 is required.
If no specifications are present, please see the product datasheet in this section.
Please note: In some cases, for products like our Scalable LXI Chassis, the specifications can be found on the datasheets for the associated plugin modules that are inserted into these chassis. To find these modules, go to the "Also in the Range" link above.
