XCOM, IMT process makes RF relays more economical

December 20, 2007 — XCOM Wireless Inc., a Signal Hill, Calif., developer of radio frequency products, and Innovative Micro Technology (IMT), a Santa Barbara, Calif., MEMS contract manufacturer, say they have reached a “critical milestone” in jointly producing an RF MEMS relay product.

The partners have implemented an effective wafer manufacturing process to produce die in high volumes at low cost, they said, adding that they have automated wafer-level testing, established critical process controls and enhanced temperature tolerance for soldering.

XCOM is now sampling SPDT (single pole double through) RF MEMS relays for size-constrained and performance-critical applications in automated test equipment, RF instrumentation, and military and civilian radios.
