Routers, Switch Matrices and Remote Patch Panel
ARS Products designs integrated systems that can route (locally or remotely) multiple source signals (antennas, front-ends, etc.), to multiple destinations (receivers, modems, etc.). Some architectures allow for the simultaneous distribution to multiple destinations. ARS Products designs several "off the shelf" switch matrix products, however we can also design a switch matrix that meets your needs.
There are many ways for a signal to get from point A to point B. The topology selection has a direct bearing on the functionality the switch matrix can provide in a customer's application. ARS Products uses several topologies, including Klos architectures. Other key factors in the selection of the switching system must also include balancing dynamic range and isolation.
In concept, the signal flow is quite simple; just route the signal from point A to point B. This is where the simplicity ends. In order for the signal to arrive at point B with the highest fidelity, it must pass through amplification and switching circuits that introduce minimum distortion. The primary goal is high dynamic range: the lowest noise figure, and the highest inter-modulation intercept points.
Switch Matrix Features
- Many ARS products switch matrices are modular
- Quick access to power supply modules
- High Dynamic Range-The lowest noise figure with the highest inter-modulation intercept points
- Routing Topologies- Getting signals from point A to point B (and C and D). ARS Products uses several topologies, including Klos architectures
