The 40-787 Microwave BRIC platform is designed to provide a solution for complex RF matrix applications. Using a common mechanical platform the module can be constructed to provide scaleable non-blocking or blocking microwave matrix for frequencies to at least 20GHz. The standard configurations provide up to a 4x4 matrix. More complex matrix can be constructed by adding further switching functions and other devices inside the module. The matrix is available with optional terminated inputs to avoid the creation of standing waves on unconnected input cables. A Loop Thru option allows the matrix size to be expanded by combining a number of modules with additional cables, enabling 8x4 or even 8x8 matrix to be constructed.
