RF Relays Demonstrate Low VSWR
Thu, 12/04/2008 - 10:46am
Omron Electronic Components’ G6K-RF-S Series DPDT gull-wing SMT RF relays exhibit a VSWR of ≤1.2 while handling 1 A at 30 V DC (discrete load) and 1 W at 1 GHz (high-frequency load). The 10.7 × 8.6 mm devices have power consumption of 100 mW, max. release time of 3 ms, min. electrical life of 100K operations, max. transmission capacity of 3 W and max. switching capacity of 1 W. The RoHS-compliant components offer min. isolation of 20 dB at 1 GHz between contacts and 30 dB at 1 GHz between non-continuous contacts, max. insertion loss of 0.2 dB at 1 GHz. coil voltage versions of 3, 4.5, 5, 12 and 24 V DC and non-latch or single-coil latching options. Applications include test and measurement equipment, high-speed LAN equipment, cable modems, set top boxes, satellite receivers and wireless base stations.
