  • CCT-38U: Terminated SPnT, DC-52 GHz Normally Open Coax Switch

  • CCT-39U: Terminated SPnT, DC-52 GHz Latching Coax Switch

These join the CCR-50U SPDT DC-53 GHz failsafe/ latching relay and CCR-39 SPnT DC-52 GHz latching coax relays that already enjoy wide acceptance. In addition to excellent RF performance, the family offers the widest operational temperature range (-55 to +85 °C), lowest weight and amongst the longest life (up to 5 million actuator cycles) of any 50 GHz switches available today.

"With increasing demand for 5G equipment, our customers have been asking for switching solutions that comfortably exceed 50 GHz bandwidth," said Michael Palakian, Teledyne Relays’ Global Director of Sales & Marketing. "With our new 52 and 53 GHz models, we can offer solutions that comfortably exceed their needs, while being extremely reliable and rugged enough to withstand 500 Gs of shock."

Applications for the new products include 5G ATE testing, military radar testing, electronic warfare, ground-based radios, telecommunications, automated test equipment, space, medical, and satellite communications.
