Microelectronic relay enhances reliability for ATE systems

International Rectifier’s new PVY117 series of microelectronic relays (MERs) is designed to increase product reliability by replacing electromechanical and reed relays with more reliable solid-state versions that have no moving parts, lower power consumption and lower actuation current requirements. In addition, they offer a much smaller subminiature, surface-mount package for high-density applications.
