Welcome to Standex Electronics' RF Reed Relays Part I training module. Reed relays have long been known to have the capability to switch and carry RF signals and fast digital pulses. Hardly anyone thought reed relays were capable of switching and carrying RF up to 20 GHz, because the reed switch's leads are composed of nickel/iron which has a relatively high permeability or (MU). However, 20GHz is now a reality at Standex Electronics. We will be presenting the reasons Standex Electronics and their design team have made this possible.
