MACOM continues to build on our long legacy of providing high reliability semiconductor products by acquisition and organic growth.  Our standard screened line of RF and microwave components provides a cost and time effective approach to meet the requirements commonly found on airborne applications, high MTBF ground based equipment, and space applications.  When system performance or program screening requirements call for more than MACOM’s standard catalog screened parts, MACOM can tailor a solution by taking a standard catalog device, assembling with proven assembly processes and tailoring a custom screening program that can be created by either adding screening options or by generating a program specific sequence.  Depending upon the product, equivalent screening requirements supported are, MIL-PRF-38534, MIL-PRF-38535 and MIL-PRF-19500 utilizing the test methods defined in MIL-STD-883 and MIL-STD-750.

MACOM’s Lowell DLA Certified and Trusted Foundry produces a wide range of Silicon and GaAs diode and passive products; GaAs MMICs and Hybrid devices that are assembled and environmentally tested on site, or at trusted process partners, to assure high reliability performance to meet mission reliability requirements. 

MACOM offers custom design capabilities.  MACOM can design custom Integrated Circuits, packaging and testing to support unique program requirements or replace obsolete or discontinued products. Our applications engineering support team is responsive, flexible, innovative, and ready to help solve your program issue.
