Broadband Matrix - Distributive (Fan-out) Hot-swap
ETL has a wide Broadband Switch Matrix and Broadband Router range for Satellite communications, including the hot-swap NiGMa Broadband Matrix which is used for many high resilience high performance applications. With single input and output cards the NiGMa Broadband Matrix can be populated to any size you require - some common ones are shown below.
Non-blocking: this means any input can be routed to any output. In general our solid state (L-band) matrices are non-blocking.
Full Fan-out Matrix (or fully distributive or splitting matrix): any input can be routed to any output. One input can be routed to many outputs. Each output can only have one input. Tends to be more RX.
Now in its 3rd generation, the NiGMa Broadband Matrix has proved to be genuinely high performance with excellent flatness or frequency response, excellent isolation, and linearity - a truly leading edge Broadband Router.
The NiGMa Broadband Matrix has hot swap of all active components - RF cards, CPU's and PSU's. In addition the NiGMa Broadband Matrix has the designed-in resilience provided by one RF card for each RF input and output, dual redundant CPU's, and dual redundant PSU's.
The NiGMa Broadband Matrix also has extensive on-board monitoring - and reporting - of RF card amplifier status, CPU and PS& status and HMI communications.
The NiGMa Broadband Router can easily be formed into larger Matrix Systems up to 512x512.
