Programmable attenuators signal more control for matrix16 September 2017
The Nexus-3 mesh test and measurement matrix is one of a number of products being demonstrated by Quintech at IBC. The company revealed it has already won orders for the product for a Tier 1 US government contractor.
According to the company, these mesh matrices used in research test beds for certifying the design of critical communications technologies for the military. The Nexus-3 mesh matrix attenuator switch is available in 8-, 16-, 24-, and 32-port configurations. With integrated programmable attenuators, a device under test can send and receive signals to any or all other connected devices with independently controlled signal levels.
The mesh test matrix passes signals from UHF radio, 3G, 4G/LTE, and 2.4GHz WiFi.
Frank Elling, president of Quintech Electronics, said: “We are excited to be offering the mesh attenuator matrix with the most stringent RF specifications for communications test labs. The Nexus-3 mesh test matrix provides best-in-class,
port-to-port isolation and minimal crosstalk.
High input levels up to 45dB are routed with zero signal distortion. Our Q-LAAMP lab management software platform provides an easy-to-use intuitive web browser GUI with both manual and automated sweep control of the attenuators.”
