A track record of high-performance RF design solutions for critical communications

RF design

RF design specialists with more than 200 years combined experience in microwave and mmWave product design and integration. We have access to an exclusive range of in-house designed GaAs MMICs and GaN FETs. Our MMIC engineers are experienced in designing on a wide range of GaAs and GaN foundries, and in using foundry models, as well as fine-tuning and optimising our own model sets. We maintain a comprehensive range of Computer Aided Design systems for microwave circuit design, system simulation, thermal design, mechanical design and automated test programme development.

We offer bespoke microwave design services for a broad range of applications up to 114GHz – across a range of market sectors including telecoms, aerospace and defence, critical communications and test and measurement. Our engineering team has skills in the design of integrated modules involving complex electronic control of the components and a deep understanding of the application and architecture for which the designs are intended.

We are unique in having many of our designs manufactured and tested in-house by our state-of-the-art high volume manufacturing facility. This allows concurrent development of tailored test solutions and manufacturing processes to ensure a smooth transfer into production and rapid volume ramp up.

Filtronic designers, while always selecting the right technology for the specific application, also have access to an exclusive range of in-house designed GaN FETs or multifunction microwave and mmWave ICs which give major cost advantages to our bespoke designs.
