Technical Education Webinar Series
Title: The “Ideal Switch” Technology for High Performance/Harsh Operating Conditions for A&D Applications
Date: February 9, 2022
Time: 8am PT / 11am ET
Sponsored by: Menlo Micro
Presented by: Ian Burke, Senior Systems Application Engineer, Menlo Micro
Mission-critical communications systems require switching technology that can operate under demanding operating conditions and environments. This webinar will compare RF Semiconductor and MEMS switches for their capability to operate over extreme temperature, shock, and vibration ranges without sacrificing RF performance. A new RF MEMS switch has been developed using advanced process technologies to address these extreme environments with a switch that is optimized for superior thermal, shock, and vibration performance when compared with traditional EM relays and semiconductor switches. We will discuss some of the critical tests and advanced characterization that have been performed on RF MEMS to meet stringent aerospace and military requirements for the “Ideal Switch.”
Ian Burke has over 30 years of RF design and manufacturing experience in the military, space and commercial infrastructure markets.
