Electronics Semiconductors double-pole/double-throw DPDT multiplexing signal switch

MENLO MICRO MM5600 double-pole/double-throw (DPDT) switch delivers high performance and data rates for high-speed differential switching applications, including next-generation artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), GPU/CPU, data center and cloud-based applications, as well as automated test equipment (ATE) device interface boards and high-speed computer peripheral interfaces. Device enables technology for the production test and characterization of a broad number of next-gen high-speed digital interfaces. Device provides high-speed operation from dc to 20GHz or 40Gbps, outperforming conventional electromechanical (EM) relays and solid-state switches. Device provides best-in-class differential switching solution for high-speed digital applications based on the latest PCI Express standard, PCIe Gen 5, which doubles interconnect speeds over the PCIe 4.0 specification (32 Gigatransfers per second versus 16 GT/s). Device can also be configured for single-ended operation for RF and microwave applications. Its flexible configuration enables internal differential crossover capabilities, greatly simplifying board routing.
