AbsorptiveSP8T Switch


Mini-Circuits’ MSP8TA-12-12D+ is an ultra-reliable, rugged-duty absorptive fail-safe SP8T switch designed in
break-before-make configuration. Its patented switch design comprised of very few frictionless moving parts which
enable repeatable and optimum performance. Powered by +12VDC, the device has a typical switching speed of 20
milliseconds, insertion loss of 0.2 dB and high isolation of 90 dB. The MSP8TA-12-12D+ is suitable for use across
a wide range of applications, including switching for automated test equipment and redundancy switching.
