PICKERING ELECTRONICS Series 113RF SIL/SIP miniature coaxial reed relays for high frequency RF systems up to 3GHz feature a 2mm spacing footprint, enabling them to be stacked at very high densities. The small, screened devices are faster and smaller than electromechanical relays (EMR), have a lower insertion loss and improved dc capabilities than solid state relays (SSR), and heightened hot switching performance over micro-electromechanical machine (MEM) devices. Product series is suitable for switching up to 10W, 0.5A. 1 Form A configurations (SPST normally open) are available with 3V or 5V coils with coil resistances of up to 100/300 ohms respectively.
