IRVINE, Calif., 19 Dec. 2009. VTI Instruments Corp. has introduced two RF/microwave switching solutions: the EX7105A and EX7204A. Part of VTI's EX7000 series, the new high-density instruments feature an open-platform COTS core that can be configured for a variety of custom applications.

The EX7000 family is a microwave test system core that enables high-integrity signal switching between sources and measurement instruments (e.g. spectrum and network analyzers). "This modular product line simplifies the development of custom RFIU requirements with its common hardware platform and software-based communications interface providing the foundation for a common, corporate-wide solution." says a representative.

Modularity and re-usability are key characteristics of the EX7000 series, says Jon Semancik, VTI's director of marketing. "Our open-platform design ensures that users have the flexibility to leverage these core sub-systems as requirements change throughout a project's life cycle."

The EX7204A offers performance, flexible design options, a compact footprint, and an operating range that extends to 26.5 GHz.

The EX7105A is designed for size-constrained RF switching applications providing exceptional signal integrity in a 1U rack, half-width enclosure.
