The company offers single-pole double-throw devices like the CCR-33, and a number of multi-throw versions. Coaxial switches are available as latching and failsafe versions. Depending on the impedance (50 or 75) and power, SMA, SMB(75), N or TNC connectors can be specified, and terminated coaxial switches can be supplied as needed. The terminated switches have internal terminations that provide a 50 matched impedance to ground for all unselected ports, and double-pole triple-throw switches can be used when termination of resistors above 1W of power have to be used and therefore externally mounted. Coaxial switch matrices are also available, including power supply, microcontroller, software and required interface. Among other uses, the switches are used in wireless applications, electro-medical equipment, and test and measurement equipment.
A slew of announcements about new materials and design concepts for transportation have come out of several trade shows focusing on plastics, aircraft interiors, heavy trucks, and automotive engineering. A few more announcements have come independent of any trade shows, maybe just because it's spring.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
