MENLO MICRO MM5120 single-pole/four-throw (SP4T) DC-to-18 GHz switch and MM5140 DC-to-6 GHz SP4T switch provide the industry’s highest performance, reliability and integration for RF switching applications, 5G network infrastructure, and test and measurement equipment. Built on firm’s Ideal Switch technology, devices deliver 25W power handling, ultra-low insertion loss and the industry’s highest linearity, significantly outperforming electromechanical relays (EMRs) and conventional solid-state switches. Both switches feature an integrated charge pump and driver circuit with SPI and GPIO interface control options. Devices can operate with more than three billion switching cycles, resulting in reduced downtime, maintenance and cost and a 1000x longer lifetime compared to conventional EMRs.
