CRF Series

MEDER electronic
CRF Series
7 GHz High Frequency Reed
Relay for 50 Ω Impedance
DESCRIPTION
The MEDER CRF Series Reed Relay is a low-profile
device made with a ceramic case that exactly matches
the thermal coefficient of expansion of the reed switch
glass and the reed lead to eliminate any potential
packaging stress. Capable of switching up to 7 GHz
with <40 ps rise times for digital operations, this leadless
50 Ohm reed relay is the smallest in the industry and
switches into the billions of operations.
Capable of withstanding reflow-soldering operations
up to 260°C, the relay uses no internal solder and has 1
µV typical thermal offset. Measuring only 8.6 mm x 4.4
mm x 3.4 mm, the leadless design eliminates skewing of
leads and co-planarity issues.
APPLICATIONS
