The Importance of Microwave Switching

When architecting an automated test system that includes Microwave instrumentation, whether for military, aerospace, automotive or semiconductor applications, it is often advantageous to design in a signal routing or switching system. This video will explain how switching subsystems can bring great benefit to an automated test strategy, reducing overall cost and increasing the throughput of test. Switching signals at microwave frequencies offers some unique challenges that must considered to ensure reliable and repeatable test results.

Along with the video, we offer additional references to help you understand both RF & Microwave switching.
