Using Calibration to Optimize Performance in Crucial Measurements
Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced the introduction of 40, 50 and 67 GHz SPDT and bypass switches. This expands the well-accepted N1810/1/2 series switches with three new frequency options, delivering the only 67 GHz electro-mechanical switch on the market today. These new switches are ideal for customers needing to test radar, satellite, wireless-HDMI and microwave backhaul radios, as well as customers working with high bit rates in high-speed digital designs.
“Agilent is the established leader of high-performance switches with exceptional reliability and repeatability,” said Tan Boon Khim, Operations Manager, Test Accessories Operation, Agilent. “These new series of high-frequency SPDT and bypass switches expand our portfolio of high-performance switches to customers who need to test components and subsystems to 67 GHz and to maximize test efficiency without compromising measurement accuracy or reliability.”
The N1810TL/UL, terminated and unterminated SPDT latching coaxial switches, and the N1811TL/12UL four-port and five-port bypass switches, combine unmatched configuration flexibility with excellent repeatability, long life and reliability.
Additional capabilities include:
• High reliability and exceptional 0.05 dB insertion loss repeatability, minimizing system uncertainty and reducing downtime.
• Long operating life of 5 million cycles guaranteed and 10 million cycles typical, reducing cost of ownership.
• Excellent isolation > 70 dB at 67 GHz, maximizing measurement accuracy.
