Following the completion of a £700,000 funding round to expand its overseas sales and device characterization capabilities during the second half of 2012, Mesuro has announced the enhanced services and capabilities it is now able to offer its customers.

The funds have enabled the business to move forward in two ways; first, Mesuro has relocated to the Pencoed Technology Park, within the Sony UK Technology Centre in Pencoed, Wales. Second, the new space enables the company, for the first time, to centralize its office and engineering-based functions under one roof.

The newly designated engineering laboratory is available for customer measurement activities, research & development and prototyping work to be undertaken. The funding received during 2012 has enabled Mesuro to refit much of its capabilities, and as such it can offer its customers such measurement capabilities as high power test to 4 GHz fundamental – up to 100 W CW, microwave harmonic capability to X band fundamental, fundamental only facilities to 67 GHz, and on-wafer capabilities to 40 GHz.

The improved load-pull facilities will utilise the company’s open loop active harmonic and WaveForm Engineering technology offering its customers the opportunity to obtain the data required for improved amplifier designs. The systems will also be capable of extracting the ‘Cardiff behavioural Model’ formulations, suitable for use within the CAD environments employed by many designers.

Simon Mathias, VP of Sales for Mesuro, commented, “Following the recent investment, these new facilities will enable Mesuro to capitalise on the huge opportunity-base in front of us, in terms of our ability to demonstrate the benefits of Mesuro’s Active Harmonic Load Pull technology in conjunction with WaveForm Engineering to potential customers; allow Mesuro to continue developing the product portfolio; and provide enhanced support facilities to our existing customers. We are looking forward to accelerating the growth of the company over the next 12 months.”
