THE IDEAL SWITCHTM
Big, Slow, Unreliable
Inefficient, High Leakage, Non Linear
THE MOST IMPORTANT TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION IN
ELECTRONICS SINCE THE TRANSISTOR....THE IDEAL SWITCHTM
The World's Smallest, Fastest, Most Reliable
Headquartered in Irvine, California, Menlo Micro has reinvented one of the most fundamental building blocks of electronic systems – the electronic switch. Our Ideal Switch platform is a game-changer for those who design electronic systems, serving multiple industries including next-generation 5G mobile networks, industrial IoT markets, battery management, home automation, electronic vehicles, and medical instrumentation. Menlo Micro’s low-loss, high-power switch only needs a few picoamps to function and operates up to 1000x faster than a typical mechanical switch. It brings unprecedented performance improvements as compared to a PIN diode switch, reed relay or high power RF relay.
