An RF (Radio Frequency)
and microwave switch is a device to route
high frequency signal through transmission paths.
RF and microwave switches are used extensively in microwave test systems for signal routing between instruments and devices under test (DUT). Incorporating a switch into a switch matrix system enables you to route signals from multiple instruments to single or multiple DUTs. This allows multiple tests to be performed with the same setup, eliminating the need for frequent connects and disconnects. The entire testing process can be automated, increasing the throughput in high-volume production environments.
Best RF performance (in VSWR, Insertion Loss, Isolation) in broad frequency ranges, high linearity, high power handling capability.
