RFMW today announced a global distribution agreement with Menlo Microsystems, Inc. (Menlo Micro), known for reinventing the electronic switch with its Ideal Switch™ technology. Under the agreement, RFMW becomes a franchised distributor for worldwide marketing and sales of Menlo Micro products derived from their Ideal Switch™ technology, including RF and general-purpose switches, RF subsystems and power relays. RFMW is a specialized distributor providing customers and suppliers with focused distribution of RF and microwave components as well as specialized component-engineering support.
“The exponential growth of Menlo Micro around the world requires a channel partner who recognizes the value of demand-creation, as well as global marketing, sales and logistical support,” said Lew Boore, SVP of WW Sales and Business Development at Menlo Micro. “After an extensive review of potential partners, we’ve selected RFMW which will be key to supporting Menlo Micro’s next major growth phase. We are truly excited about the synergies between RFMW and Menlo Micro which will benefit our customers worldwide.”
The Ideal Switch enables 99 percent reductions in size, weight, power consumption and impacts dozens of applications and markets including test and measurement equipment, power management systems and 5G networks which will in turn enable the electrification of everything: today’s rapid transition to electric and autonomous vehicles, advanced avionics, IoT appliances, robotics and more. The massive improvements enabled by the Ideal Switch are modernizing the market for RF and power switching and protection devices in the 21st century.
According to Steve Takaki, Executive Vice President at RFMW, “RFMW has long recognized the value that MEMS technology brings to certain RF and microwave applications. The advantages of small, surface mount products which are not only reliable but can handle high power with low insertion loss are an RF designer’s dream come true. That’s why we are incredibly excited to formally partner with Menlo Microsystems on a global distribution agreement. RFMW’s industry leading technical sales support and global logistics teams allow us to provide design engineers the latest technology, the Ideal Switch, for improved system designs in the rapidly growing communications and defense markets.”
