Reliant Switch

March 26, 2014

ReliantSwitchTMThe Reliant SwitchTM is a 1×6 bidirectional coaxial switch with an operating frequency from DC to 26.5 GHz, which covers the typical 6 GHz test range and beyond for high-speed testing. This switch is designed with a high isolation of 100 dB (up to 4 GHz) to maintain RF consistency between port-to-port testing and can sustain a guaranteed insertion loss repeatability of 0.03 dB across the entire frequency band.
