Menlo Micro’s Sr. RF Systems Applications Engineer, Stewart Yang, will be teaming up with Steven Edwards, Switching Product Manager at Pickering Interfaces, to present “The Impact of MEMS-based RF Multiplexers for Next-Generation Test Systems,” a one-hour webinar hosted on Tuesday, March 19 at 8am PDT.

Pickering Interfaces and Menlo Micro joined forces in 2023 to bring to market a range of ground-breaking RF Multiplexer products – the first to incorporate the Ideal Switch® technology pioneered by Menlo Micro. Experts from both companies will discuss their long-term collaboration to transform next-generation test instrumentation, addressing some of the key limitations and tradeoffs between performance, reliability, form factor, and overall cost of test.

Attendees will learn about:

  • The unique performance characteristics of Pickering’s 40/42-878 family of Ideal Switch-based PXI & PXIe RF multiplexer modules and their impact on test efficiency.
  • Comparisons to other RF multiplexer technologies such as solid-state and electromechanical relays.
  • Menlo Micro’s Ideal Switch technology, along with performance benefits and key use cases for both RF and power control systems.
  • Future directions for both Menlo Micro’s Ideal Switch product line and Pickering’s switching product line.
