L-band Matrix / L-band Router
ETL has a broad L-band Switch Matrix and L-band Router range for Satellite communications, including the hot-swap NiGMa L-band Matrix which is used for many high resilience high performance applications and smaller more application-specific L-band Routers which are used in cruise ships, broadcast relay stations, and smaller broadcast functions.
Our standard L-band range covers 850-2150MHz and our extended L-band range covers 850-2450MHz.
ETL Custom Build -If you have a requirement which isn't covered by any of our products on the website please contact us directly and we can work with you to define the product or even technical specifications you require.
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.
Full Fan-in Matrix (or fully combining matrix): any input can be routed to any output. Many inputs can be routed to each output. Each input can only be routed to one output. Tends to be more TX.
Fan-in Fan-out (FIFO) Matrix: multiple inputs can be combined and the combined signal can then be routed (distributed) to multiple outputs. There is no restriction on how many inputs and outputs can be connected together simultaneously, even all inputs to all outputs at once.
The NiGMa Matrix range is fully hot-swap with hot-swap of all active components such as RF cards, CPU, and PSU.
