Spectrum Microwave

Spectrum Microwave is a key part of the Spectrum Control story. It has a rich history of blending synergistic microwave companies with talented staff whose mission was to deliver a quality product with exceptional performance. Spectrum Microwave was known as a leading designer and manufacturer of high-end RF components and integrated microwave assemblies for the defense, aerospace, and commercial wireless markets. The company enjoyed a strong reputation for customer satisfaction, quality and on-time delivery.

After Spectrum Control was acquired by API Technologies in 2011 Spectrum Microwave continued to exist as a business entity but was folded into an APITech business unit called RF2M-US.

Many of the products continue to be manufactured by the new Spectrum Control. Scroll for links to current product families.


Timeline and History

After acquiring FSY Microwave in 2002 and Salisbury Engineering in 2004 Spectrum Control made the decision to form a new company, Spectrum Microwave, from those businesses that were focused on microwave filters, integrated microwave assemblies, multipliers, and synthesizers. With the acquisition of Remec in 2005 and Amplifonix in 2005 Spectrum Microwave's product focus expanded to include RF amplifiers, switches, detectors, integrated systems, and voltage-controlled oscillators. 

Spectrum Microwave continued to add products and capabilities through acquisition until the merger with API Technologies in 2011.
