Ultra Miniature Surface Mount Reed Relays
Expected life is 200 million cycles (N/O contact), and 100 million (N/C) at 1V 10mA load. RF bandpass (-3dB) is 4GHz (N/O) or 3GHz (N/C). Isolation and return losses at 1 GHz are –10dB and –20dB respectively. An external magnetic shield reduces electromagnetic interaction between closely spaced relays. This combination of small size, long life and good RF bandpass is unattainable by electromechanical or micromachined relays. Gull-wing, "J"-lead or axial surface-mount styles are available in tubes or tape-and-reel spools. Delivery is from stock to 6 weeks.
