Ventura, California – May, 2004

Dow-Key Microwave (a subsidiary of Dover Corp., NYSE:DOV), is an ISO 9001 certified manufacturer of electromechanical coaxial and waveguide switches, switch matrices, integrated modular assemblies, and related passive components. Its newest product, a CANbus-based Coaxial Switch Matrix System with Ethernet control interface, performs from 1 to 18 GHz and is configured as an 8X8 full fan-out Switch Matrix.

To compensate for system insertion loss, all inputs are outfitted with high linearity amplifiers. The EWAB version of this product can be easily accessed from anywhere in the world via TCP/IP protocols on 10Base-T networks using HTTP 1.0 interface. While the 3201 Switch Matrix is designed for signal routing applications, it can also be utilized as a building block for numerous ATE applications.

Each unit is equipped with a Windows-based PC computer and front panel touch screen for manual override and is housed in a low profile 3U rack mountable chassis. This CANbus-based Switch Matrix offers an enclosure and redundant power supplies matched for EMI integrity. Impedance is 50 Ohms, switching speed is 60 ms.

Typical Performance (P/N 3201):

Bandwidth: 1-18 GHz
VSWR: 2.0 : 1
Gain: 0 dB Min
Isolation: 60 dB Min Input /Output, Output/Output (Different Input)
