Anritsu Company has declared that its Microwave Technology Center (MTC Fab) offers thin film fabrication services in order to enable companies to optimize their device performance and bring products from the initial prototype stage to commercialization.
The MTC Fab with over 20 years of operation with state-of-the-art technology can fabricate circuits for multi-layer stems, microwave applications, resistor networks, thin film sensors, hybrid circuits, attenuator circuits, and power hybrids used in defense, telecommunication, automotive, space and civil aviation, medical, biotechnology as well as calibration design.
The Anritsu MTC Fab features clean room spanning 6000 square-foot class 100/1000 and showcases a comprehensive line of test and manufacturing equipment for the fabrication of a range of thin film devices to customers' specifications. Customer-specific services such as resistor laser trimming, thin film deposition, photolithography patterning, substrate laser drilling and device singulation services. The expertise of the staff and the sophisticated equipment ensure that prototype CAD designs move to bulk manufacturing in a brief period. They work together with customers in order to refine and develop their thin film device designs to achieve performance standards.
The high-mix circuit needs of any customer are supported by the fab equipment. Fabrication of devices is possible on a range of form factors that include 5-, 4-, 3.25-, 2- and 1-inch square and round substrates, with thickness up to 125 mil. It is possible to manufacture devices with a number of materials such as alumina, fused silica, silicon, glass and titanium.
An ISO 9001-certified Quality Assurance program, including a range of wire and ribbon bonding tests, is instituted to make sure products meet customer requirements.
