Additional features include compact, rugged, military-grade coaxial packages along with an operational temperature range of -40°F to +185°F, making these switches reliable in extreme weather.

“Our expanding offering of high-power RF switches ensures our customers minimize the risk of costly downtime and repairs to their systems. They are perfectly suited for transmit-and-receive chains and test-and-measurement applications,” said Tim Galla, senior product manager.
