Advantages of solid state RF switches/microwave switches
- The Solid State RF and Microwave Switches offer the following advantages over mechanical switches:
- Long operating life
- Fast switching times
- Low power consumption
- Small size
Mechanical RF and Microwave Switches usually have lower insertion loss, higher isolation, and higher RF power handling capability. However, because of the advantages mentioned above, Solid State RF and Microwave Switches are to be preferred if very low insertion loss and/or very high isolation is not needed.
A RF coaxial switch/Microwave solid-state switch provides excellent performance with fast switching speed across a broad frequency range. A Ranatec RF coaxial switch/solid state switch provides safe and accurate tests of sensitive RF components. Applications include instrumentation, defense, communications, radar, antenna, and many other test systems that require high-speed RF switching. The long operating life of Ranatec’s RF coaxial switches/Microwave solid state switches makes them excellent in large-scale applications. If your company carries out high-volume RF testing, it is time and cost efficient to use a RF coaxial switch system to automate the testing process and streamline the product cycle.
