Switches & Relays Design Data
companies listed here can supply your needs for any type of switch, be it solid state or mechanical,
reflective or absorptive, manual or electrically controllable. They provide not only a stock
of off-the-shelf models, but can also design and manufacture custom models for meeting specialty
insertion losses, m x n matrices, form factor, power handling, or other unique parameters. There
is a lot of design information available in the form of white papers, datasheets, and online
write-ups. Please consider contacting RF Cafe advertisers first for your needs.
