Switches Address RF/Microwave ATE

Expanding the capability of the Series 8000 and 8800 families are 50 GHz and 67 GHz switching relays. Offering a frequency range up to 67 GHz addresses switching in automated test equipment (ATE) for a number of aerospace and defense applications.  In addition, 67 GHz covers the frequency band intended for the wireless transmission of multimedia data, i.e., wireless HDMI. The ASCOR Series 8000 and 8800 are available in a wide variety of configurations from a collection of individual relays, multiplexers, matrices, or combinations thereof.  For 50-/67-GHz switching solutions, configurations are comprised of SPDT, terminated SPDT, transfer, four-, and five-port relays.
