Coventor's MEMS switch technology enables design engineers to create new wireless products featuring low insertion loss and high isolation capabilities in a smaller package. The MEMS technology platforms will enable the fast design and prototyping capabilities necessary to bring handset and microwave communications systems to market quickly. The MEMS switches can be customized and integrated with passive and active components on ICs for RF mixed-signal functions. The family is designed to operate from DC to 40 GHz with a low insertion loss of <0.2 dB for die and <0.4 dB for packaged devices. Coventor's RF switches provide high isolation of >25 dB at 40 GHz and >40 dB at 2 GHz. Contact reliability is at >109 cycles.
