Pasternack has expanded its line of high-power switches created for high reliability in transmit and receive, and for test and measurement applications.

Its expansion of high-power switches comprises multiple models with hot switching for passing back and forth between components with no disruption to device performance.

These RF switches provide power handling up to 200W and a switching-speed rating of 40ms. They offer N-Type female and SMA connector options and wide frequency coverage from 30MHz to 6GHz. Also, they are engineered with compact, tough, defence-grade coaxial packages together with an operational temperature range from -40F to +185F.

“This comprehensive line of switches minimises the risk of costly downtime and repairs. Designers will find it extremely useful in transmit and receive chains, and for test-and-measurement applications,” said Tim Galla, senior product manager.
