Fairview Microwave Announces New High-Rel Electromechanical Switches in Compact Surface Mount Packages

Surface Mount RF Switches from Fairview Offer Impressive Broadband Performance and High Power Handling Capabilities

Allen, TX -Jan 19, 2016 -- Fairview Microwave Inc., a supplier of on-demand microwave and RF components, announces a brand new line of high-reliability SPDT surface mount electromechanical RF switchesthat cover broadband frequencies from DC to 8 GHz. These new RF switches offer exceptional reliability and repeatable performance which make them an ideal solution for demanding industries and applications related to aerospace, defense, industrial, telecom, instrumentation, medical devices and many others.                       

The new electromechanical SPDT (Single Pole Double Throw) switches from Fairview Microwave utilize compact surface mount packages and are designed for high-rel performance rated for 2 million life cycles minimum. Frequencies for these switches range from DC to 8 GHz and models incorporate either Failsafe or Latching Actuators. Exceptional performance over -40°C to +85°C includes a maximum CW power rating of 400W, high isolation up to 50 dB and insertion loss as low as 0.1 dB. Operating voltage is +24 VDC.

The package assembly is fully RoHS compliant and the bottom side consists of a PWB mounting surface that’s gold plated and designed to resist the effects of oxidation for ease of soldering. Assembly instructions and downloadable PWB layout software are available from the website. Another key feature with the package design is the ability to withstand exposure to MIL-STD-202 test conditions for sine and random vibration as well as mechanical shock.

“This innovative lineup of high power surface mount SPDT electromechanical switches is available from stock and offers designers the same level of exceptional performance and high reliability as with more traditional coaxial switches,” explains Brian McCutcheon, Vice President and General Manager at Fairview Microwave. “The miniature package design features a gold plated mounting surface that resists oxidation and can easily be solder-mounted onto a PCB.”

Fairview’s electromechanical relay switches are in-stock and available today. You can view the RF switches by visiting http://www.fairviewmicrowave.com/rf-products/surface-mount-electromechanical-switches.html. Fairview Microwave can be contacted at +1-972-649-6678.
