Mini-Circuits’ ZTVX-n-18 series comprises a range of flexible, 2 by n switch matrices covering DC to 18 GHz, available in a compact 2U height, 19-inch rack-mountable chassis with all RF connections (SMA) accessible on the front panel. This system is available in a range of blocking switch matrix configurations from 2 x 8 to 2 x 16, ideal for expanding a standard 2 port VNA for a multi-port or multi-device test scenario:
• Parallel testing of multiple 2 port devices (eg: filter and amplifier production testing)
• Production testing of splitter/combiner or switch components with high port counts
• Testing of MIMO systems with high channel counts
The system can be controlled via USB or Ethernet (supporting both HTTP and Telnet network protocols). Full software support is provided, including our user-friendly GUI application for Windows and a full API with programming instructions for Windows and Linux environments (both 32-bit and 64-bit systems).
