29 Jul Matrix Switch for use with 75 Ohm Network Analyzers
Three new 75 Ohm blocking matrix switch models have been added to the JFW website. Model 75MS-029 is a solid-state 2X8 blocking matrix that operates 3-1000MHz. Model 75MS-030 is a solid-state 2X6 blocking matrix that operates 3-1000MHz. Model 75MS-037 is an electro-mechanical 2X12 blocking matrix that operates DC-1700MHz. These 75 Ohm matrix switches can be used to fan-out connections from a 2-port 75 Ohm network analyzer to allow for automated multi-port 75 Ohm testing. Connecting the 2X12 matrix in series with a 2-port network analyzer, creates a twelve port test set. For all three models, the unused output ports are self-terminating at 75 Ohm impedance to keep the DUT properly impedance matched at all times. All three models are remotely controlled via serial or TCP/IP connections. The remote command set consists of simple ASCII formatted commands. The remote command set for our 3.x.x firmware is available for download.
