- Pickering Interfaces, a specialist in modular switching and signal simulation solutions for electronic testing and validation, announces the 60-801/60-802 series multiplexers integrated in a 1U and 2U LXI form factor.
These switches, with four and six channels, cover maximum frequency bands depending on the model up to 6GHz to 40GHz.
A choice of 16 multiplexer banks regardless of the bandwidth combination (6GHz, 18GHz, 26.5GHz and 40GHz) can be supported.
Remote control is provided by the 1000Base-T Ethernet interface. The live switching paths are indicated by LEDs.
These switches, with a three-year warranty, are dedicated to switching 50Ω coaxial systems from the HF band to microwave frequencies.
They target applications requiring high levels of performance from the defence, aerospace, semiconductor and communications sectors. According to Pickering Interfaces, they typically support 10 Million operations for most models, but the actual duration would be over 25 Million operations.
