Switching Solutions

The BitifEye 2100 series is a modular and scalable switching system. Five slots can be equipped with 2:1, 4:1 or 6:1 switch modules, with a bandwidth from DC up to 26.5 GHz.

We provide several application specific configurations, which are also connected to our ValiFrame / N5990A test automation software. Apart from this is also possible to customize your own switch system, and control it either manually or using your own control software.
