IRVINE, Calif., March 7, 2023
Menlo Microsystems, Inc. (Menlo Micro), the company responsible for bringing to market the greatest electronic component innovation since the transistor with its Ideal Switch® technology, introduced a new six-channel single-pole/single-throw (6x SPST) switch. The MM1200 provides the highest density AC/DC switching device with the lowest DC power consumption for applications that require highly repeatable and reliable switch operations in space-constrained medical, industrial, and test and measurement applications.
Built on Menlo Micro’s market-proven Ideal Switch technology, the MM1200 switch provides a superior replacement for electromechanical signal relays (EMRs) and Reed relays in high-density switching applications. The MM1200 is capable of 1.0 A per channel steady state while delivering stable on-state contact resistance and high off-state isolation. With more than three billion switching cycles and ultra-fast switching times (below 10 µs), each MM1200 channel is normally open (NO) and individually controlled by a serial peripheral interface (SPI) bus. The device is easily reconfigurable enabling multiple switch configurations such as dual SP3T and triple 2P2T.
“Developers of scientific, medical and test equipment are seeking new and innovative ways to reduce the cost and complexity of their systems and shrink board space and component count,” said Chris Giovanniello, Co-founder and Senior VP of Marketing at Menlo Micro. “We’ve expanded our Ideal Switch portfolio with the production release of a new high-performance, highly integrated SPST switch that offers best-in-class switching speeds and reliability. The MM1200 switch enables developers to meet their size, weight, power and cost targets for a wide range of demanding high-density signal switching applications.”
The MM1200 SPST is the fifth product released to the market based on Menlo Micro’s patented Ideal Switch technology, unique characteristics include:
