Surface-mount Coaxial Relays
Amphenol RF, Danbury, CT
Amphenol RF has developed several high power microwave relays for applying directly to a printed circuit board (PCB) utilizing the SMT process. These designs enable the user to move from a frame-mounted package design necessitating a labor-intensive final assembly into the supporting product. In addition to the physical mounting of these earlier designs, hand soldering of the solenoid power leads was required as well as cabling of the NC/C/NO contacts to the main PCB.
