Dow-Key Microwave to Feature Versatile Family of 40 GHz Switch Products at AUVSI Xponential 2017 in Dallas, Texas

Ventura, CA, May 4, 2017 – Dow-Key® Microwave, part of the Microwave Products Group (MPG) – a subsidiary of Dover Corporation, to exhibit solutions up to 40 GHz at AUVSI Xponential: Microwave Products Group Booth 420.
On May 8, 2017, the largest global community of leaders in drones, intelligent robotics and unmanned systems will come together to shape the future of our industry. AUVSI Xponential 2017 will equip you with insights, solutions and opportunities for the industry’s newest developments and challenges.

This year, AUVSI Xponential will be held in Dallas, Texas, on May 8-11 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center with Dow-Key® Microwave – the oldest continuously operating switch manufacturer in the United States, showcasing a broad array of high quality and reliable 40 GHz electromechanical switches, in addition to, switch solutions such as the Reliant Switch™ and Miniature MS-Series Matrix used for Automated Test applications.

Dow-Key® Microwave is committed to providing a wide selection of coaxial switch options operating up to 40 GHz, which can be configured for a variety of ATE and military applications.

Our 40 GHz switching solutions are legacy products proven over and over again, which supports high speed testing and application that operates from 28 GHz and up to 40 GHz such as millimeter wave drones and devices designed for the 5G network, said Sara Nazemzadeh, Dow-Key® Microwave s Matrix Product Sales Manager. This product line is also offered both with terminated or non-terminated RF ports, catering to applications that may need the transition line to be terminated.

For applications, on the lower end of the 5G spectrum, we are excited to showcase our newest generation of switch matrix product line, the Miniature MS-series (MMS). It is an ideal solution for routing RF signals in test and measurement applications up to 26.5 GHz or to use as a VNA port extender. The MMS-series comes equipped with the user’s choice of high performance Reliant Switches™ in a compact enclosure, taking minimal real estate space in a test lab” said Sara Nazemzadeh. Furthermore, the Reliant Switch™ design features a guaranteed insertion loss repeatability of 0.03 dB across the entire frequency band of DC to 26.5 GHz, and it comes with an extended life of a minimum of 10 Million Life Cycles for SPDT s and 5 Million Life Cycles for SP6T s, which is perfect for high density and high repeatability RF test applications.
