High Power Coaxial Switches


High Power Coax

Overview

MPG Switch line of High Power RF & Microwave Switches fit applications where electromechanical switches fail to meet the size, cost and speed of project specifications. At microwave frequencies, a high power switch acts as a current-controlled resistor, allowing current to flow in a single direction. When forward biased, the switch relay behaves as a closed circuit, but when the current is reverse biased, the RF switch becomes an open circuit.
