Solid State

smaller custom matrices

Overview

Utilizing our skill and knowledge in frequency routing and mitigation, we have designed high caliber Solid State Switch Matrices capable of switching a single input signal to all output ports simultaneously. Our Solid State solutions support up to 40 GHz and include PIN diode and FET based devices, delivering high-power-low video leakage/switching transients, fast switching speeds, high isolation and absorptive designs.

Benefits

  • Non-blocking full fan-out switching system
  • High linearity amplifiers to compensate for system insertion loss
  • Redundant power supplies with LED monitoring on front panel
  • Removable hard drive
  • LCD touch screen
  • Ethernet remote control
  • Fast switching speeds up to 10 ms
  • Ultra-long lifecycle
  • Built-in temperature stability
  • Signal routing across typical frequency bands, including HF, IF, VHF, L, S and broadband

Problems Solved

Reliably routing the input signal to any output port, Solid State Matrices are applicable for complex applications where multiple I/O signals increase switching complexity.

  • Situations where high-density RF switching (transmitting and receiving) for narrowband, low frequency and low power applications are required
  • Support for low power and high-density signal routing both on the transmitter (Fan-Out) and receiver (Fan-In) side
