At IMS 2011, American Microwave Corp. (AMC) featured its new integrated switch matrix technology. AMC brings microwave integrated circuit technology to the solid-state switch matrix resulting in a hybrid switch matrix on a single substrate (SMS).
Using a multilayer substrate, AMC is able to meet customers' needs for low insertion loss and high isolation while designing for low cost SMT production. With SMS, AMC can offer various configurations of RF/microwave switches with custom driver/logic circuitry and custom mechanical requirements.
With two sides for discrete components, AMC can integrate a variety of other components including filters, amplifiers, combiners/splitters, bias Ts and fault circuits.
