RF MEMS Switch
Product Announcement from Omron Electronic Components – Americas
Combining its long history of innovative relay products with its MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical System) expertise, Omron has developed a new RF MEMS Switch to meet the requirements of the ATE market. Using an electrostatic drive mechanism, the switch combines the desirable HF characteristics of electromechanical relays with a life expectancy generally only found in solid state relays. Omron utilizes both 5" and 8" MEMS wafer production lines in its own foundry facilities.
