SWITCHABLE MULTI-CHANNEL AMPLIFIERS


API Technologies offers state-of-the-art Multi-Channel Amplifiers used in demanding military frequency calibration systems. These 2, 3, and 4 channel modules are all phase matched, amplitude matched and offer both single and multiple path logic.

These units allow the engineer to either distribute an amplified signal to multiple ports, or measure the amplified output from up to 4 auxiliary ports.

  • The Model BXMF1020 as shown on the left is a 4 channel design which features phase and amplitude matching on all 4 channels, including 4 auxiliary ports used to measure the amplified output signal. Machined Channeled paths help to provide up to 60 dB Channel to Channel Isolation with PIN Diode switches used for high speed, high isolation performance.

  • The model BXMF1019 on the left is a two channel design which allows for rapid 200 ns switching from either a common distributed port to a dual input-output phase matched configuration. Each mode is configured using TTL logic and gain for either path is identical. All channels are phase matched to one another, amplitude matched and offer exceptional out of band rejection, isolation and spurious free dynamic range performance.
