RF Switching Connectors

RF Switching Connectors

RF switching
RF Switches are typically used as test access points or for external antenna applications. The switch is activated by manually mating a connector to change the RF path. RF switches come in several different standard interfaces, such as MMCX, MCX, and SMA, and are also available in micro-miniature package sizes with specific mating probes.
