High performance switching that features low insertion loss and very high isolation

Pickering's PXI Microwave Switch Modules vary from simple multiplexer and switch configurations to integrated matrices and large multiplexers. Most products are characterized for 50Ω operation however certain 75Ω versions are supplied either as standard or custom products. Remote versions occupy a single PXI slot with the microwave switches mounted separately from the host chassis, connection to the module is via a supplied control cable.

3-Year Standard WarrantyAll of these microwave switch modules use high quality RF connectors that are supported by our cables and connector accessories . We stand behind our products with a three-year warranty.
