Dow-Key Microwave Announces LAN eXtensions for Instrumentation (LXI) Certified Switching Systems


Dow-Key Microwave LXI Switching Systems Our LAN eXtensions for Instrumentation (LXI) certified switching systems offer a broad range of functionality to meet a wide variety of applications needs in design verification, combining state-of-the-art measurements in a small package at a cost-effective price.

The advantages is it allows the user easily to connect/or disconnect the DUT from the switching matrix to test the next DUT. In addition, Ethernet and RS-232 ports are provided on the rear-panel.

Dow-Key Microwave offers broadband matrix solution with frequencies stretching from DC to 40 GHz (and
switches stretching up to 70 GHz). Any desired configuration is supported -- you name it -- blocking, crossbar, fan-out, fan-in, or any hybrid configuration. With customized solutions as their specialty and years of system experience, Dow-Key Microwave build to design.
