World’s Smallest 10 GHz Switch

NewsSouth-East European INDUSTRIAL Мarket - issue 1/2009

Omron Electronic Components and MSC Vertriebs announced the availability of the world’s smallest 10GHz RF MEMS switch. It features an insertion loss of 1dB at 8GHz in an LGA12 package of just 5.2 x 3.0 x 1.8mm. The rated operating temperature ranges from -20 to +85 degrees centigrade and has a typical power consumption of only 10mW. The Omron 2SMES-01 MEMS switch impresses by its outstanding durability, excellent RF transmission performance and very low power consumption in the sector of standard electromechanical devices. However its remarkable feature is the ultra-compact form factor because many instrumentation applications use banks of switching devices. Therefore the miniature size of the new RF MEMS switch provides the significant advantage of saving space and reducing the overall system dimensions. Initially the switch is being released in SPDT version. The Omron switches are perfectly suited for automatic test equipment (ATE), RF test instruments and similar applications.
