MEMS Power Relay Prototype
Menlo Micro has developed a new Ideal-Switch fabrication process and applied it to AC/DC power relay applications.
The core technology has found commercial uses in demanding applications such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) systems.
Originally developed for power electronics applications such as relays as circuit breakers, Menlo’s Ideal Switch technology exhibits many unique features such as thin surface mount form factor, zero hold current, low weight, scalability in voltage/current handling and the ability to break a circuit in <20us.
Together with the reliability of the metal contact system, the technology will enable new applications and integration possibilities where traditional electromechanical relays are unsuitable due to size, switching speed, and reliability requirements.
