MER Speeds Up ATE Throughput

The PVY116 microelectronic relay (MER) handles test signals up to 450 MHz, a characteristic said to improve ATE system throughput and efficiency. Smaller than dry or mercury-wetted reed relays, the single-pole, normally-open device comes in a four-pin SOP-4 package and employs HEXFET power MOSFETs for the output, which receive drive signals from a photovoltaic generator. Other features include a typical figure of merit of 9.1 pF x ohm, 1.5 kVRMS of input-to-output isolation, and an ESD tolerance of 2 kV as per the human body model. Price is $2.40 each/50K.
