A mesh matrix switch/attenuator assembly has been specified by a leading defense contractor to test communications systems for the U.S. military.

A mesh matrix developed by Quintech Electronics & Communications, Inc. has been selected by an undisclosed defense contractor to serve wireless testing for a U.S. government program. The NEXUS-3 Mesh Matrix will be used for signal routing in test systems that characterize the performance of different wireless technologies and equipment for the U.S. military. The switch matrix features integrated attenuators so that a wide range of test signal levels can be passed through the system without damaging sensitive analyze input ports. The mesh test matrix passes signals from UHF radio, 3G, 4G/LTE, and 2.4-GHz Wi-Fi.

“We are excited to be offering the mesh attenuator matrix with the most stringent RF specifications for communications test labs,” said Frank Elling, president of Quintech Electronics. “The NEXUS-3 mesh test matrix provides best-in-class port-to-port isolation and minimal crosstalk…Our Q-LAAMP lab management software platform provides an easy-to-use intuitive web browser GUI with both manual and automated sweep control of the attenuators.”
