RF Microwave

Your signal is only as strong as the electronic components and interconnect technologies that make it happen. Choose AMETEK ECP for RF and microwave technology.

In one way or another, radio frequency and microwave technologies are present across all major industries: Aerospace and automotive manufacturing, telecommunications, defense, energy, health care and more.

With so many applications and so much nuance, leading companies in each of these sectors must secure partnerships with 21st-century manufacturing services providers that forgo one-size-fits-all solutions for electronics, interconnects and hermetic packaging built custom for their specific operations.

In short, they need a partner like AMETEK Electronic Components and Packaging (ECP).

Over its 80-year legacy, AMETEK ECP has stood at the cutting edge of communication engineering. Time and time again, we’ve incorporated emergent innovations into our portfolio and challenged ourselves to always improve how we design and test our products.

Solder and brazing preforms

  • Standard square, rectangular and disc-shaped preforms are available. AMETEK ECP also designs and produces a wide variety of custom preform shapes in-house.

  • Over 100 completely lead-free alloys to choose from: Gold, silver, tin, zinc, antimony, copper, indium, iron, molybdenum, nickel, tungsten, Kovar™, germanium, palladium, platinum and more.

Metal microstamping

  • Applications: Jumper chips, bonding pads, covers, heat sinks, lead frames, tabs, terminals and more.

  • Materials: Kovar™, molybdenum, tungsten, copper Silvar™, Silvar-K™ and more.

  • AMETEK ECP primarily manufactures two-dimensional microstampings, but we can produce custom three-dimensional products as well. Please inquire for more information regarding feasibility and pricing.

Wire and ribbon

  • High-purity gold wire is available in diameters as small as 12.5 microns.

  • Fine high-performance copper wire balls available up to 75 microns (0.0003 inch) diameter. Standard high-performance copper wire available up to 250 microns (0.01 inch).

  • Nickel-coated aluminum wire resists corrosion.

  • Gold ribbon available in a variety of dimensions, strengths and elongations.

  • Aluminum bonding ribbon requires fewer bonds and dissipates heat effectively.

Blind-mate RF connectors

  • SMP connectors: Subminiature designs, PO-compatible and MIL-STD 348 compliant. Standard high frequency up to 26.5 GHz.

  • SMPM connectors: subminiature micro design, PPO-compatible and MIL-STD 348 compliant. Maximum frequency to 40 GHz.

  • SMPS connectors: subminiature sub-micro design and 3PO-compatible. Maximum frequency to 65 GHz.

  • All connectors listed are customizable according to multiport configuration, body length, and pin extensions and terminations.

  • Ask about solder and weld options for connector body.
