RF Testing

Micross STS possesses an established understanding of RF device technology and the acquired expertise to adapt, design, and test RF SoC and chip-scale packages. Our RF development is targeted to the world’s present and future needs for short-range connectivity and more rapid response times.

Decades of meeting the demanding needs of Aerospace & Defense customers have given us the technical expertise and intelligent processes to deliver reliable, high-volume RF testing for any market. Whether your product is a 2 GHz electrosurgery instrument, a 10 GHz satellite transmitter, or a 60 GHz small cell backhaul transceiver, Micross STS will get the job done on time, to your specifications and budget. Compared to traditional rack-and-stack approaches, we deliver higher throughput, greater efficiency, less device damage, and excellent repeatability. That’s why more and more customers – aerospace/defense and commercial – count on us for their most stringent RF testing needs.
