Title
(EN) System and method for reconfiguring RF signals in a multi-input receiver
Abstract
(EN)

A multi-input receiver including a plurality of RF antennas, a multi-channel receiver, an input port configuration block (IPCB), and a configuration block controller. The IPCB includes at least two two-way connection modules, at least one four-way connection module, at least one direct connection module, and a plurality of electronic signal pathways. Each connection module includes a connection module input port communicatively coupled to an RF antenna of the plurality of RF antennas, a connection module output port communicatively coupled to a channel of the multi-channel receiver, and a mechanical diversion switch. The mechanical diversion switches and the plurality of electronic signal pathways are positioned and configured such that the mechanical diversion switch of each connection module communicatively couples a splitter bypass signal, a 1×2 signal, or a 1×4 signal to the connection module output port on a selective basis.
