A new microstrip/coplanar-waveguide-mount relay from RelComm Technologies offers outstanding performance from DC to 9 GHz. Designed for high packaging density and a great deal of circuit layout flexibility, the rugged relay measures just 0.880 x 0.575 in. It provides a double-pole, double-throw (DPDT) transfer configuration with better than 50-dB isolation and 0.4-dB maximum insertion loss to 9 GHz. Ideal as a building-block component in switch matrices, the compact relay exhibits maximum VSWR of 1.40:1 and is designed for operation from +12 and +28 VDC supplies. The relay is available with failsafe or latching operation with optional configured "circuit insertion" whereby one internal bridging contact is removed to provide a non-shorting circuit path. The RoHS-compliant relay is silver plated for enhanced passive-intermodulation (PIM) performance.
