Dow-Key Microwave has invested in R&D for new RF
switch products designed specifically to reduce intermodulation (IM) in coaxial switches. The introduced family of
special RF switches meets the very stringent and low intermodulation requirement of-160 dBc PIM level imposed by
today’s test and communication industries.
Cheung, VP of Sales and Marketing at Dow Key Microwave states, "As a technology leader, Dow-Key remains committed
to deliver innovative switching solutions for the Test and Measurement market.” Cheung further adds, “The
extensive qualification, along with the refinement of our manufacturing process for our latest Low Passive
Intermodulation (PIM) switches, has enabled Dow-Key to build a solid foundation focused on the cutting edge of
technology, and in areas directly in line with our customers’ needs.”
focuses on defining Passive Intermodulation and the concerns around PIM. It also discusses the cause of PIM in
both general terms and in switches, while also providing a solution for systems with low PIM requirements.
