The Menlo Micro MM5120 is the world’s first generally available high-power RF SP4T micro-mechanical switch. Menlo Micro has developed a new fabrication process and applied it to DC and wideband RF/microwave switch applications. This new innovative technology enables robust and highly reliable switches capable of greater than 25 W CW power handling at 6.0 GHz. The MM5120 provides ultra-low insertion loss and superior linearity from 12 GHz down to DC, with greater than 3 billion switching cycles guaranteed at +85 °C. Integrated high voltage generation simplifies usage when only a single low voltage is required for operation.
The MM5120 is an ideal solution for replacing large RF electromechanical relays, as well as RF/microwave solid-state switches where linearity and insertion loss are critical parameters.
