M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc., a supplier of semiconductors, active and passive components and subassemblies for RF, microwave and millimeter-wave applications, announced that its Santa Clara Design Center has moved to a new facility with state-of-the-art equipment to accommodate the expanded engineering and business functions that occur at this location. This Design Center is focused on the design and development of monolithic PHEMT integrated solutions covering 6 to 50 GHz for commercial and military applications. M/A-COM Tech had previously announced in May 2010 that Henrik Morkner joined the company as Director of Engineering to lead this team in Santa Clara, and this expansion points to the group's commitment to collaborating with its marketing teams and customers to develop industry-leading devices.

The new Santa Clara Design Center occupies approximately 11,600 square feet and includes a 1,200 square foot engineering lab for design and test characterization of MMICs, surface-mount devices (SMD) and connectorized modules. In addition to new product development, the Santa Clara Design Center provides engineering design support and Product Line Management for the Component Product Line, which covers a wide variety of catalog and custom applications. The Santa Clara Design Center is located near the San Jose International Airport and is across the street from Santa Clara University.

"This move to a new facility with state-of-the-art equipment allows M/A-COM Tech to fully utilize the talented team we have assembled in Santa Clara for new product development," said Mike Murphy, Vice President Engineering, M/A-COM Tech. "Under Henrik's guidance we are able to work closely with our customers to define and develop products which meet their requirements, both from a technical and commercial approach."
