Following the success of the Diamond RF Resistives® product range, EMC Technology now offers CVD Diamond Heat Spreaders designed to meet today’s demanding requirements for higher power and longer life spans by keeping junction temperatures low and stable. CVD Diamond provides up to 8x the thermal conductivity of traditional materials like AlN and BeO.
Element Six, the world leader in synthetic diamond supermaterials and member of the De Beers Group of Companies, announced it has acquired the assets and intellectual property of Group4 Labs Inc. (Group4), a semiconductor wafer materials company that manufactured Gallium Nitride (GaN) on-diamond semiconductor technology for RF and high-power devices.
Nujira Ltd., the world’s leader in Envelope Tracking (ET) technology, has signed a partnership agreement with LTX-Credence Corp., a global provider of market focused, cost-optimized semiconductor test solutions. The agreement will see Nujira use the LTX-Credence Diamond10 tester for testing of its Coolteq.L High Accuracy Tracking ET modulator ICs ahead of full volume production later this year.
Element Six, the world leader in synthetic diamond supermaterials and member of the De Beers Group of Companies, announced in collaboration with Delft University of Technology the entanglement of electron spin qubits (quantum bits) in two synthetic diamonds separated in space. This breakthrough is a major step toward achieving a diamond-based quantum network, quantum repeaters and long-distance teleportation — changing the way information is processed and enabling new systems to efficiently tackle problems inaccessible by today’s information networks and computers.
Diamond Antenna & Microwave and Diamond-Roltran have expanded their joint microwave rotary joint repair business to include the ability to repair and refurbish all OEM rotary joints including those made by Kevlin, Sivers, Cobham, Premier, ITT, Diamond and others.
To address the pressing need for increased reliability and lower life cycle cost, airborne satcom rotary joint customers are now ordering Diamond Antenna & Microwave rotary joints with integral Diamond-Roltran Roll-Rings®. Roll-Rings® are the only rotating electrical contact solution that rolls instead of slides like slip rings and therefore does not create wear debris.
Nano Materials International Corp. (NMIC) announced that it has shipped its 10,000th aluminum diamond metal matrix composite (MMC) heat spreader for use in gallium nitride (GaN) RF power transistors and MMICs.
Diamond Antenna Europe BVBA has been formed as a joint venture between AML Microtechnique Lorraine S.A. and Diamond Antenna and Microwave Corp. to manufacture rotary joints in Metz, France. The venture will provide production, customer service, and sales to designated European markets.
