Monzite has been awarded a new contract to build high-speed switch drivers for the Eurofighter aircraft platform. The $155,000 award is for delivery of microelectronic components is used in the Eurofighter’s Electronic Warfare Self Protection System.
The Monzite team is pleased to support this follow-on order for the long-standing European aerospace platform. Our engineering team continues to engage with the Eurofighter team for extending the relationship with additional projects.
It started as a casual conversation at a trade show over the summer.
We have been using Hirose connectors for years, and the company’s representative thought this 5G Switch Evaluation Board we built was a noteworthy mmWave Test application of their product.
So, Monzite and Hirose decided to jointly present this info-graphic. Click on this image to enlarge or download as a PDF:
Note: The switch featured here is high-speed, up to 40 GHz, SP4T built in a 12mm SMT package.

"At the Electronics Manufacturing Center (SMAC-EMC) we build optical encoders for our company’s operations in California where they are integrated into our end product, electronic actuators. For our part, we needed a supplier of chip-on-board production, with die placement, wire bonding and epoxy coating. We had a source in California, but for a number of reasons we had to seek a new supplier.
We searched for a while, and found Monzite to be the company that had ...
Monzite introduces new switch drivers that supply higher voltage, current and switch fast. They are compatible with most standard MMICs. Our engineers have also developed the “MMIQ” new multi function assemblies, with multiple MMICs, transmission line, bias structures, all in a single QFN package.

"I consider Monzite to be an extension of our company. At one time we did the work in-house, but it was much more practical to outsource it to Monzite. I’ve worked with Diane Gallo for more than 20 years, at several prior companies, so I have complete confidence in her ability and the capabilities of the team she has at Monzite.
We’re all chip and wire. Manufacturing knowledge and experience is really hard ...
Framingham, N.H. firms ink deal to deliver parts to key defense contractors
BY EMILY MICUCCI
The U.S. military possesses the most advanced defense technology in the world —hence the superpower status —but many of the designs of major military machines such as ships, fighter jets and submarines are decades old.
These vehicles are built to last a lifetime, even a century, in the case of the Boeing B-52 Bomber Aircraft, which was rolled out in the 1950s, said Richard Nadeau, president and founder of ...

Big Problem in a Tiny Space
Need for specialized MMIC switch driver in airborne sensor sparks an idea for a new product with multiple uses.
An engineer for a major aerospace contractor was working on a prototype for a new classified airborne sensor. The mechanicals were exceedingly tight and he needed a MMIC switch driver with specialized capabilities but found no off-the-shelf technology that would fit.
The problem at hand was dealing with variable high output voltages from an array of MMICs. After reviewing ...
