Ideal Switch is a device that delivers all the benefits of a mechanical relay and a semiconductor switch. The Ideal Switch is said to be fast, reliable device that can withstand extreme temperatures, is ultra-low loss, and can handle 1,000 watts. Moreover, it is manufactured using conventional semiconductor equipment.

Menlo Micro says that 15 per cent of India’s electricity is used by ceiling fans and using efficient Ideal Switches can help save energy.

With this round, Menlo Micro’s total cumulative funding has reached over $225 million.

“Today’s funding milestone underscores the confidence our investors have in Menlo Micro’s transformative technology to fuel the electrification of everything and modernize the $100+ billion market for RF communications, power switching and protection devices in the 21 st century. It will enable us to expand our manufacturing in the US and accelerate the development of our power roadmap to solve some of the world’s most pressing challenges. We’re positioned to enable the upgrade of the world’s aging power grids, modernise smart buildings and factories, and eliminate many of the inefficiencies in our legacy electrical infrastructure,” said Russ Garcia, Menlo Micro CEO.
