In Pursuit of Excellence
Through Engineering since 1978


AMC Model SW-2000-8AT-200 is an
Absorptive SP8T Switch Module Designed To
Maintain Low Harmonic RF Contents, and High Isolation From
Extensive Noisy
Environments By Applying Opto-Isolators on Control Signal
Ports and Voltage
Transient Suppressors.  Applications are for Highly
Sensitive Low-Noise Radars,
Missile Systems, EW-Systems, Etc.
