Menlo Micro Digital-Micro-Switch Technology Hits the Market

November 13, 2018 Laura Dolan

Menlo Micro will debut its Digital-Micro-Switch (DMS) technology platform at Electronica. They can be found in Hall 5, booth 454/6 on the show floor of Neue Messe München in Munich, Germany this week, November 13-16.

Joining forces with Corning Incorporated and Silex Microsystems, Menlo is in sampling mode and will commence full production of the DMS by the end of 2018.

The new products will help the company increase its manufacturing and business operations and mass produce its high-performance RF and power products into a much broader markets. Menlo plans to manufacture micro-mechanical switches that will advance systems in medical equipment, military communications, test and measurement instrumentation, industrial automation, 5G communications networks and more.

“In less than two years, we’ve been able to successfully transition our robust and reliable MEMS switch process from a research environment to a true production fab. In this period of time, we have also achieved several key technical milestones, most notably the integration of Corning’s TGV substrates with Menlo’s MEMS switch process to deliver a miniaturized, chip-scale-package solution for our products,” said Chris Keimel, Menlo Micro’s CTO, referring to Menlo’s new wafer manufacturing line. “Scaling the process to an 8” production line is a significant step that brings size, cost, performance, and manufacturability improvements to Menlo’s DMS products – and demonstrates that the technology can indeed be scaled to commercial levels.”
