GENASYS 75 Ohm RF Multiplexer Switch Card, (4) 2 x 16 Multiplexers

  • (4) 75 Ohm, 16 x 2 RF Multiplexers, compatible with GENASYS switching subsystem (GX7016/GX7017)
  • Extended 6U design offers a "cable-less" test system interface
  • Supports connections to both an internal bus and external high frequency bus

OVERVIEW

A component of the GENASYS switching subsystem, the GX6864 switch card is one of several different switch cards which can be used with the GENASYS switching subsystem. The GX6864 features (4) 16 x 2, 75 ohm RF multiplexers / matrices with a bandwidth of 500 MHz, making them ideal for video switching applications. Like other GENASYS switch cards, the GX6864 is compatible with the MAC Panel 6U SCOUT receiver and offers “cable-less” connection to the receiver connectors - eliminating the need for cable harnesses and the associated reliability issues that come with cabled solutions. The result is a system interconnect design that is cost effective, reliable, and maintainable.

DESCRIPTION

The GX6864 consists of (4), 2 x 16, 75 Ω RF switch configurations that can be used as multiplexers or matrices. The switch card is an extended 6U PXI module with direct connection to the receiver interface. The inputs to the switch multiplexers are accessed via dedicated external connectors located on the switch module. Additional connections are provided to the GENASYS' internal 16 wire bus for low frequency and self test applications.

SOFTWARE

See GX7016 or GX7017 for more information regarding GXCHASSIS and GXSW software provided with this card. For end to end to signal routing, Marvin Test Solutions’ SwitchEasy is used to control and manage overall signal switching. SwitchEasy provides end to end signal routing by having the user simply define the resource and receiver pin or UUT connections, simplifying overall application development and deployment time.

APPLICATIONS

  • GENASYS switching subsystem
  • Automated system test applications
  • High I/O count, mixed-signal test applications
