VENTURA, CA (March 15, 2017) – Space leaders from more than 30 countries, are expected to attend the Space Foundation’s 33rd Space Symposium, participating as speakers, panelists and exhibitors, and with delegations representing China, France, Germany, Korea, Japan, Russia and the European Commission.
This year, Dow-Key Microwave will feature Next Generation Waveguides and Miniature Mechanical Switches at 33rd Space Symposium, Booth 1115 on April 3-6 at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, CO. Our Next Generation Waveguides are now designed with an emphasis on more compact, lighter and cost effective designs. The superior RF performance and power handling capability make Dow-Key an ideal partner for space programs. Nearly all of our waveguide switches can be supplied in either a “C” or “R” configuration for use in complex switching systems.
Also featured, will be our PCB mounted, Low Mass/Power Miniature Mechanical Switches. The switches are designed with an overall size of 0.75” X 0.75” x 0.58”. For applications where small size, reduced weight and less power consumption are requirements, our miniature mechanical switches are designed with a weight of 0.5 ounces.
