ZUG, Switzerland, 6 Feb. 2012. Teseq Holding AG, a developer and provider of instrumentation and systems for EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) emission and immunity testing, has acquired MILMEGA Ltd., a U.K,-based specialist in the design and manufacture of solid-state, high-power microwave and radio-frequency (RF) amplifiers. The acquisition is intended to strengthen Teseq capabilities in military, commercial, industrial, automotive, and communications applications.
"RF amplifier power, linearity, and harmonic performance are critical to achieving accurate immunity testing results. Adding MILMEGA's amplifiers to Teseq's extensive range of EMC testing products extends our product offering to include both EMC and non-EMC applications, strengthening our position as the supplier of choice for innovative, high-quality test instrumentation to an increasingly wide range of customers," says Johannes Schmid, president of Teseq.
MILMEGA designs and manufactures high-power amplifiers for commercial and government applications. The company's core strength lies in the development of broadband RF power amplifiers operating in a frequency range from 80 MHz to 8 GHz with power levels to 1 kW, says a spokesperson. The MILMEGA factory will become a competence center for RF amplifiers within the Teseq organization, which includes eight subsidiaries and seven accredited labs worldwide.
"Our customers now have access to an extensive RF product range as well as engineering expertise that will facilitate the development of innovative system solutions to meet their needs today and in the future. Combining our individual strengths ensures our market focused approach to new developments and enables us to more accurately define new amplifier requirements for years to come," says Pat Moore, managing director of MILMEGA Ltd.
