Ventura, California – June, 2005

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 Solid State Switch Matrix with RS 422 control interface, performs from 3.4 to 4.2 GHz and is available in full fan-out configurations from 32X32 to 32X64.

The Matrix consists of two Input Modules (housed in 3U rack mountable chassis), four Output Modules (each housed in 6U rack mountable chassis), and one Controller Module (housed in a 3U rack mountable chassis). The Controller Module is equipped with a Windows-based PC computer and front-panel with touch screen for manual override. While the 5096 Switch Matrix is designed for signal routing applications, it can also be utilized as a building block for numerous ATE applications.

This CANBUS-based Switch Matrix is designed with a focus on reliability and easy maintenance. To support the ”less than one hour” requirement for MTTR (Mean Time to Repair), the matrix is equipped with hot swappable redundant power supplies and hot swappable input and output cartridges.Impedance is 50 Ω.
