Description

AKON’s Model No. A35-MX141 is an absorptive switch matrix consisting of 36 RF input/output connectors with two SP18T absorptive RF switches as the basic building blocks. Using a single RFconnector, it allows either a transmitter or receiver to connect to 36 different array elements. Phase matching of +/- 8º is from any of the 16 input ports to any of the 12 output ports. The input signals are launched through a precision, high performance 2.0 dB attenuator and a mechanical adjustable phase shifter. The unit is fed using a phase matched cable to an Integrated Microwave Assembly (IMA). Microwave Assembly consists of SP5T (70 dB isolation), a medium power, low noise amplifier, a VVA for temperature compensation of amplifier and switch circuits.
