Menlo Micro MM3100

2018 Edition. In Device Technology of the Year

The MM3100 has come on the scene in 2018! This amazingly small, yet powerful device is starting to bring transformative improvements in size, weight, power and performance to various end markets, most notably software defined radios and tunable RF front-ends. This low-profile surface mount package (6mm x 6mm x 1.4mm) packs an embedded controller and (6) high-power, lossless mechanical switches, manufactured with Menlo's proprietary metal-on-glass Digital-Micro-Switch technology. An industry-first in packaging and integration, the MM3100 can handle upwards of 75W without generating excessive heat, and allows customers to replace large numbers of components such as PIN diodes, drivers, and even electromechanical relays, enabling a new generation of lightweight, high-power tunable radios.
