API Technologies Corp. (API) announced that it has entered into a collaboration arrangement with Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI). Using API’s U.K.-based facilities, the parties will collaborate on the production of custom, high-reliability electronic modules and assemblies. This alliance is designed to permit ADI’s wide range of high performance integrated circuit (IC) and high speed digital signal processing technology to integrate with API’s value-added engineering services, footprint reduction, miniaturization technologies and in-house production, manufacturing and testing capabilities, enabling API to deliver a U.K.-designed and manufactured product directly to U.K. and European customers for aerospace and defense programs.

To reduce time to market, API and ADI sales forces will cooperatively identify U.K. and European aerospace and defense customers who are seeking a solution that integrates ADI’s proprietary semiconductor and IC technologies within a custom-designed API module.

Richard Farrington, the managing director and vice president of API Technologies U.K., said, “We are very excited about our growing relationship with ADI, which has been important in Europe to both companies for more than 15 years. Through this alliance, both ADI and API will better serve our European customers through a comprehensive forward-looking portfolio of U.K.-designed, industry-leading solutions for the global high-reliability electronics market.”

Bryan Goldstein, the general manager of ADI's aerospace and defense business unit, said, “Our expanded collaboration with API strengthens our commitment to our European customers for the highest quality Analog Devices solutions for innovative assemblies and integrated circuits, now delivered from Europe through API’s U.K.-based engineering, design and manufacturing operations.”
