Miniaturized. Low-loss. High-linearity.
The Ideal Switch’s superior parasitics enable the creation of revolutionary new filter designs, in both switched and tunable configurations. This can have a transformational impact on software defined radios. The MM6005 is the first example of many to come.

Miniaturized. High-speed. High RF performance.
Currently, beam steering antennas either deliver strong RF performance and power handling using large, expensive motor-driven mechanical phase shifters. Or they use small, inefficient solid-state phase shifters that cannot handle high power and deliver poor RF performance.
We have patented a no-compromise solution: the Ideal Switch Differential Delay Shifter.

Miniaturized. High-speed. Long life.
Switch Matrices based on the Ideal Switch can deliver the losses and isolation of a high-performance RF relay matrix in the form-factor of a solid-state RF switch matrix. This can save precious space in your test systems, while providing microsecond switching speeds, extreme lifetimes and deliver substantial reductions in total cost-of-ownership.
