Vaunix Offers USB-Powered RF Devices
While searching the news for
this week’s RF Report, I came across a news
from Vaunix Technology Corp.
about its new LSW Series USB-controlled RF switch. The new Lab Brick product
family now includes a 10 Watt, low-cost, solid-state RF switch in single-pole/double
throw (SPDT) and single-pole/four-throw (SP4T) configurations.
While these switches are designed for use in automatic test
applications, they could also be useful in broadcast transmitter
configurations. Retail price is $399 for the SPDT switch and $575 for the SP4T
switch. For more information see the LSW Series Switch
products web page
In addition to the RF switch,
Vaunix also offers USB controlled step attenuator. The LDA Lab Brick Digital
are available for use up to 6
GHz and can be programmed for fixed attenuation or swept attenuation.
