- DC to 18Ghz
- The First Modular VXI Microwave Switch on the Market
- Up to 4 Self-Terminating 1x6 relays per SM7001A
- Microwave Building Blocks are "Pluggable" from the Front of the VXIbus Card
- An Additional 32 SPST Relays are Provided to Drive External Devices
The SM7001A is part of the SMIPII™ family, offering the extensive control and interfacing features provided by SMIPII™. Microwave relay technology has been pioneered to offer density, modularity and cost benefits.
The SM7001A base unit can house up to four 18 GHz self-terminated multi-position microwave relays. In order to drive additional RF/Microwave components, such as attenuators or splitters, 32 SPST relays are also provided per SM7001A.
The SM7001A can be easily modified to house alternative microwave building blocks (i.e. terminated SPDT relays or 1x4s) and controlled using the same instrument drivers and control logic found throughout the SMIPII™ family. Since the combination of relays is vast, not all configurations have been listed.
The 7374 relays are "pluggable" from the front, allowing them to be easily replaced for maintainability. They may be purchased separately for configuration growth during integration.
