Differential RF switch matrix series accelerates signal integrity characterization testing
SenarioTek, a leading designer and manufacturer of RF and microwave products, announced the differential product extension of the FlexMatrix reconfigurable RF switch matrix series targeting the automation and characterization of high-speed devices.
The Differential RF Switch Matrix Series offers dual one by 4, 8, 12, 16 or 32 port solutions to speed time-to-market for products using the latest standards such as PCI Express, IEEE 1394, USB 3.0, InfiniBand and gigabit Ethernet. The Differential Series offers high performance, including delay matching for transmitter measurements as low as 2 picoseconds at the DUT interface. Each switch matrix contains on-board internal memory providing the ability to conveniently de-embed the nominal amplitude and phase delay of each differential pair. With products from DC up to 40 GHz, the Differential Series enables high-speed designers to accelerate the development of both today’s standards and future standards.
“Adding differential capability to our off-the-shelf FlexMatrix Series allows SenarioTek to quickly meet the needs of the signal integrity community”, said Simi Ghiasvand, SenarioTek’s CEO and President. “Providing our customers with a reliable, high performance switch matrix enables them to develop fully automated and repeatable test platforms across both their test stations and test sites.”
