With CrossPoint Technologies’ IF/RF Switch Matrix, you can route an input to one or all outputs simultaneously. The solid state GaAs switches have virtually unlimited life, and the matrix provides unity gain (0 dB) as standard. You can tailor your product to antenna switching applications, where low noise is most critical, or for IF switching applications where high intercept and high compression points are desired. LNB power insertion is also available. The modular packaging permits the design of larger configurations using 16 x 16 building blocks; these larger matrices retain their full fan-out, non-blocking features. Plus, a centralized controller and power supply system reduce costs of the larger matrices. The standard Remote control interface is RS-232 and RS-422 (user selectable). Optional interfaces include Ethernet, and don’t forget—we can custom-build interfaces for you as well.
