High Power SP3T Switches Series HPS 9000

Application Notes for RF Switches

HIGH POWER SWITCHES

SERIES HPS 9000

Kratos General Microwave has developed series HPS900 line of High Power SP3T switches for various applications. These switches operate in the IFF and L bands, providing Power handling capability of up to 1kW in cold switching..

Typically these switches are assembled in a multi-switch assembly. The number of switches in one sub-assembly depends upon the specific architecture of the system. The control and supply voltages to the switch sub-assembly is supplied via a multi-pin connector.
