MEMS RF Switches
These relays will compete with three main existing product channels; small signal mechanical relays, low power solid state switches, and low power, high frequency mechanical switches (2 GHz to 70 GHz).
Handheld, battery powered, wireless devices will ultimately drive MMR sales. However, Dow-Key is focusing sales efforts on early adoption with the ATE, Hi-Rel, and Wireless Infrastructure (smart antennas and cellular base station) markets. These RF switches will easily handle the frequency bands for current and future cellular systems.
