Form C SMD Reed Relay has 0.078 in.² footprint.

Press Release Summary:

Suited for ATE, process instrumentation, and telecommunications applications, 9852 relay features expected life of 100 and 200 million cycles with NC and NO contacts, respectively, at 1 V 10 mA load. RF bandpass (-3 dB) is 4 GHz (NO) or 3 GHz (NC), while isolation and return losses at 1 GHz are -10 and -20 dB, respectively. Offered in gull-wing, J-lead, or axial surface-mount styles, product has external magnetic shield that reduces electromagnetic interaction between relays.

Original Press Release:

Smallest Form 'C' SMD Reed Relay Available

Coto Technology's 9852 Form "C" SMD, ultra-miniature reed relay features longer life and optimized performance for ATE, Process Instrumentation and Telecommunications applications. Expected life is 200 million cycles (N/O contact), and 100 million (N/C) at 1V 10mA load. RF bandpass (-3dB) is 4GHz (N/O) or 3GHz (N/C). Isolation and return losses at 1 GHz are -10dB and -20dB respectively. An external magnetic shield reduces electromagnetic interaction between closely spaced relays. And, with a footprint of 0.078 sq. in., the 9852 is the smallest Form "C" SMD reed relay available.

The 9852's combination of small size, long life and good RF bandpass is unattainable by electromechanical or micromachined relays. Gull-wing, "J"-lead or axial surface-mount styles are available in tubes or tape-and-reel spools. Price for 5000 pieces of the 9852 is $10.40 each, and delivery is from stock to 6 weeks.
