Introducing a prescaler / divider into our small portfolio: PMC-12080-1000, with multiple splitting rate and operating frequency up to 1.65GHz.
2015

infrastructure & expansion

In 2015 we built the current test bench in the laboratory, on which we do all the tests and verifications. It is equipped with 2 work areas, separate, for 2 technicians. Many measuring & testing equipment were also built or purchased during 2014-2015.
