In a world first for semiconductor and other test equipment, Omron Electronic Components Europe has created a MOSFET relay module that minimized leakage current. The G3VM-21MT relay from Omron combines the advantages of mechanical and MOSFET relay technologies to provide the ultimate test switching solution
The G3VM-21MT MOSFET relay has a unique T- circuit structure, this allows the device to offer an exceptionally low leakage current of just 1pA (pico-Amp) or less, providing accurate measurements in all types of test equipment. Mechanical reed relays have previously been the preferred option for semiconductor and other test equipment, in part due to their low leakage current. However, mechanical reed relays have a much lower lifespan due to abrasion of contacts which reduces measurement accuracy over time. In intensive use, frequent replacement of traditional mechanical reed relays is necessary pushing up the maintenance costs and increasing down time of the test equipment.
The G3VM-21MT MOSFET relays unique ‘T-Type Circuit structure’ sends most leakage current to ground.
This means the G3VM-21MT effectively combines the advantages of the mechanical and MOSFET relays to provide an accurate, compact and long-lasting switching solution with no mechanical contacts.

The G3VM-21MT MOSFET relay is offered in SPST contact form with no configuration required and features an impressive maximum load voltage of 20V and isolation performance less than -30dB at 1 GHz. The relay is capable of delivering a continuous output current of up to 200mA and has an operating temperature range of -20°C to +85°C.
The relay is housed in a compact surface mount module measuring just 5mm x 3.75 mm x 2.7mm.

OMRON have introduced a new Sensor Evaluation Board which gives developers working on sensor system designs for the IoT a fast track to a 'proof of concept' prototype hosted on popular embedded platforms.
OMRON has release a new series of optical sensors, featuring a longer detection distance. The OMRON B5W sensors are particularly effective at identifying black, transparent, reflective and other hard to detect surfaces.
Omron has launched a new touch operated sensor which can be used as a drop-in replacement for a traditional mechanical switch, but delivers all of the reliability and flexibility of touch.
The 2SMPB series of MEMS-based barometric pressure sensors from Omron Electronic Components Europe have been designed to support height and pressure measurement in drones, smartphones, pedometers and other battery powered mobile devices.
Omron Electronic Components Business Europe has added a wide angle 32 x 32 element version of its D6T MEMS Thermal Sensors, offering the widest field of view that Omron has ever delivered.
