American Microwave’s model SWN-18DT is a low profile SP18T solid state absorptive switch capable of operating from 0.5 to 10 GHz and handling more than 20 W of CW power. This switch is designed for high volume production offering very repeatable specifications.
American Microwave Corp. offers an operating L-Band, SP9T solid state switch that offers 1.6 dB insertion loss, >45 dB isolation, better than 1.5:1 VSWR, TTL control and handles up to 100 W CW.
American Microwave Corp. brings microwave integrated circuit technology to the solid-state switch matrix resulting in a hybrid switch matrix on a single substrate. Using a multilayer substrate, AMC is able to design for SMT production various configurations of RF/microwave switches with custom driver/logic circuitry and custom mechanical requirements.
The engineers and technicians at AMC have worked together to develop a new PIN diode switch circuit that allows for excellent insertion loss and isolation. Initial configurations will be SPST and SP3T. AMC Model Number SWNN-3DR-06T is a SP3T Reflective Solid State PIN Diode Switch with very low loss.
AMERICAN MICROWAVE CORPORATION, INC. announces an improved programmable 0.5 to 18 GHz attenuator. This incorporates a new driver circuit with faster switching and more accurate attenuation. Low insertion loss and stable operation over temperature extremes.
This Phase Invariant Digital Programmable Attenuator offers essentially constant phase, adjustable attenuation over 40 dB in the 8 to 12 GHz range. It utilizes a unique double balanced arrangement of diodes and quadrature couplers to achieve the phase independent attenuation characteristics usable over 6 to 18 GHz.
