The Series 102 is a range of subminiature coaxial reed relays for high frequency applications up to 3 GHz. Two package types are available, both displaying outstanding RF performance in terms of low insertion loss, good isolation and excellent VSWR characteristics in 50 ohms systems.

These relays have good coil drive levels making them ideal for portable applications or where space is at a premium. If an even smaller RF relay is required, look at the Series 109RF or 111RF.

102M (Mu-metal) Package.
This device, constructed in the popular Single-In-Line format, features a mu-metal case allowing dense packaging without magnetic interaction problems. It has six pins for conventional PCB mounting. With careful printed circuit board layout this configuration will perform well up to 1.5 GHz, it is easy to use and will meet most requirements.

102F (Flatpack) package.
The 102F package dispenses with the leadframe connections to the switch and screen. These terminations are instead brought out axially from the ends of the device where they are soldered directly to the stripline. This
technique allows very accurate matching to the 50 ohms line and gives an excellent VSWR right up to 3 GHz.

Mounting method:
A small rectangular hole is punched into the printed circuit board or notched into the board edge to accommodate the package. The switch leads are then soldered directly to the 50 ohms stripline, the tin plated copper foil from the screen is soldered directly to the ground plane on the reverse side of the P.C.B. The coil connections are soldered directly to their tracks in the same way.

  • Free Sample Service - determining which components to design in can be challenging. Fortunately, here at Pickering Electronics, we provide free working samples to help you evaluate our high-quality Reed Relays.
  • Reed Relay Selector Tool - this tool will help you narrow down our large offering to get you the correct reed relay for your application. Once you narrow your selections down you can download a relay datasheet for more information, purchase in stock items or request a quote to find out lead times of made to order (MTO) relays.
  • Concise Tech Guide - this guide will help you to maximise the reliability of your design.
  • Quality Assurance - learn more about the various accreditations and certifications that Pickering holds.
  • Custom Designed Reed Relays - With over a thousand catalog parts there is plenty of choice when choosing the right Reed Relay for your product, but if you cannot find one suitable for your needs Pickering can customize our standard reed relay parts to suit your specific requirements and applications.

All Pickering reed relays feature the highest quality instrumentation grade reed switches making them suitable for the most demanding applications. Internal mu-metal magnetic screens (optional on Series 103) allow very high packing density. Diodes are optional.
