PICKERING INTERFACES Partnership with Menlo Microsystems introduces new range of PXI/PXIe RF (radio frequency) multiplexer (MUX) modules featuring a new switching technology. Suitable for wireless communications and semiconductor test, the MEMS-based RF multiplexers deliver vastly increased operational life (up to 300x), faster operating speed (up to 60x), higher bandwidth, and increased RF power handling versus traditional EMR (electromechanical relay) alternatives. Insertion loss also remains comparable with EMRs and much lower than solid-state switches.
