DESCRIPTION
The LoopBack Series relay combines two DPDT
electromechanical relays in one package that includes an
internal bypass path for Automated Test Equipment (ATE)
applications. The LoopBack combines the technology of two
Teledyne RF/GRF300 Series relays which eliminates the need
for external PCB traces in loop back test applications. This
innovation results in superior signal integrity and RF
performance, while taking minimal board space. The
LB/GLB363 Series is designed for digital signaling application
and provides excellent signal integrity up to 12 Gbps data
rates.
The LoopBack relay is available with two different internal
paths: Through and AC Bypass. The Through version provides
a loop back path across high performance contact material,
while the AC Bypass Model adds a coupling capacitor across
each loop back path. The internal in-line capacitors allow you
to eliminate the footprints for external components, while
performing AC bypass functions internal to the relay. The
capacitors used feature excellent signal integrity as well as
low loss high frequency performance.
receiver of the DUT. The double pole design of the LoopBack
relay is perfectly suited for differential signaling, allowing
relay component to provide transmit and receive signals and
their inversions to the DUT or through the bypass path.
The internal structure of the LoopBack relay reduces the
number of discontinuities and shortens the signal path
during loop back testing, providing lower insertion loss and
higher signal integrity performance than two RF/GRF303
Series relays. In the normally closed mode (de-energized) the
LoopBack relay provides four normally closed contacts. When
energized, the moving contacts are connected together
across the loop back structure to provide two through paths.
The normally closed contacts have similar performance to
RF/GRF303 Series relays.
In addition to the thru-hole mount, the LoopBack Series relay
is available in through hole surface mount stub leads with a
ground shield. The surface mount ground shield used in the
stub lead provides improved high data rate and high
frequency performance, as well as improved repeatability.
Upon request, various ground pin configurations for through
lead models are available.
A typical loop-back load board application uses the Device
Under Test (DUT) to test itself. In this method, the transmitter
from the DUT is connected through a loop back path to the
