8401 Series 4x4 Butler Matrix

A Weinschel Product

APITech's 8401 series is a high performance 4x4 Butler matrix, covering several frequency bands from 500 MHz up to 8GHz. It can transfer the signal reciprocally from any of 4 input ports to any of other 4 output ports, with high phase accuracy, amplitude balance, very small insertion loss and high port to port isolation. The unit has very stable, repeatable performance.

Features:

  • Nominal Impedance: 50 Ohm
  • RF Connectors: SMA Female
  • Operating Frequency: Varies by configuration

Applications:

  • WiFi, WiMAX, 3G/4G LTE Testing, Link Simulation
  • MIMO Testing
  • Multipath Simulation and Performance Evaluation
  • Antenna Array Beam-forming
  • Interferometer System Simulation and Testing
