Feature sets like Bluetooth, video, and adaptive cruise control require RF and Microwave switching in test. Many PXI manufacturers will offer instrument cards with signal bandwidths from 500 MHz up to 65 GHz.
For example, a 6-channel 18 GHz 50 Ohm multiplexer with relays mounted on the front panel can be mechanically connected with 14 SMA plugs and terminated to our 32 position 26 GHz coaxial cable assembly (p/n 540094010112). Our cable assemblies can be customized to any length required to connect from the interface to wherever the instrument cards are mounted.
VPC’s Mass Interconnect Solutions use high density modules that are compatible with RF options up to 50 GHz.
