Agilent Technologies, Inc. introduced its models 11713B and 11713C attenuator/switch drivers for both bench-top and ATE environments. These drivers provide an intuitive graphical user interface and a variety of attenuation and switching options, as well as front-panel and remote-control features for quick design validation and automated testing. The 11713B model drives a combination of two programmable attenuators and two SPDT switches or up to 10 SPDT switches concurrently. The 11713C controls a combination of four programmable attenuators and four SPDT switches, or up to 20 SPDT switches concurrently. With an integrated tri-voltage selection of 5V, 15V and 24V, along with an input port for user-defined voltage, the switch driver has the capability to drive most commercially available switches in the market.
