Microwave Matrix

Pickering's LXI Microwave Matrix is a 2U full rack width unit that provides a compact microwave switching solution for automatic text equipment (ATE) systems. The matrix is fully configured to the specified dimensions with no extra cabling needed; saving users the cost and time of creating matrices from individual components. 

The matrix is available in a variety of configurations and frequencies up to 20GHz. They are designed to have a nominally matched path loss no matter which path is selected. They have non blocking architecture, allowing any input to be connected to any unused output. Loop-thru connections allow the microwave matrices to be easily combined to make larger arrays and versions can be ordered with or without internal terminations for disconnected inputs. For applications where extra microwave switches are required our models 60-750/751 have an auxiliary output that can be used to control 16 external switches.
