Pasternack Launches SMT Electromechanical Relay Switches

Pasternack, an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter-wave products, released a new line of micro-sized, surface mount, single-pole, double-throw electromechanical relay switches that offer broadband performance and are ideal for a variety of applications that may involve high power, switch matrices, and test and measurement systems.

Pasternack’s six new SPDT electromechanical relay switches feature popular latching actuators in micro-size surface-mount packages and offer impressive performance with very low insertion loss, high isolation and excellent repeatability. These rugged circuits are designed for high reliability with 5M typical lifecycle ratings.

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. The SMT package design offers high thermal resistance and can be used with, variety of solder mounting processes. It also includes a hot switching capability of up to 40W average power and all models are RoHS and REACH compliant.

Tim Galla, Product Line Manager, RF Components at Infinite Electronics, Inc., said: “These new SMT electromechanical relay SPDT switches are the perfect choice for designers who need broadband frequency coverage up to 26 GHz with applications that may have space limitations or require higher power switching. And for ease of installation, the micro-mechanical circuits are internally matched for 50 ohms and don’t require any external components.”
