Micro-Sized EM Switches Offer DC to 26 GHz Performance

The new series of Single Pole Double Throw (SPDT) electromechanical (EM) relay switches from Fairview Microwave delivers impressive performance with low insertion loss, high isolation, and excellent repeatability By DA Reporter / 03 Jun 2021

Fairview Microwave’s new line of micro-sized, surface-mount, Single Pole Double Throw (SPDT) electromechanical relay switches with broadband performance are ideal for a wide range of applications involving high power, switch matrices, and test and measurement systems.

The new series of SPDT electromechanical relay switches includes six models with popular latching actuators in micro-size surface-mount packages. These switches deliver impressive performance with low insertion loss, high isolation and excellent repeatability. 

Model frequency bands cover DC to 8 GHz, DC to 18 GHz, and DC to 26 GHz with 12 VDC & 24 VDC operating voltage options.

These surface-mount technology (SMT) package designs can be used with a variety of solder mounting processes and provide high thermal resistance with hot switching capability up to 40W average power. These rugged circuits are RoHS and REACH-compliant and designed for high reliability with 5M typical lifecycle ratings.

“Our new SMT electromechanical relay SPDT switches provide ease of installation, are internally matched for 50 ohms, and don’t require any external components,” said Tim Galla, Senior Product Line Manager.

“They are ideal for designers who need broadband frequency coverage up to 26 GHz with applications that require higher power switching or have space limitations.”
