RFMW Ltd. and Keysight Technologies of Santa Rosa, California, have announced a distribution agreement effective January 2, 2018. Keysight designs and manufactures high frequency, InP and GaAs MMIC devices providing broadband performance from DC to 110GHz. Product families include switches, attenuators, amplifiers, mixers, limiters, frequency doublers, detector diodes and prescalers. RFMW Ltd. is a specialized distributor providing customers and suppliers with focused distribution of RF and microwave components as well as specialized component-engineering support. Under the agreement, RFMW is franchised worldwide for Keysight’s MMIC portfolio.
Dave Savage, Business Development Manager at Keysight Technologies stated, “Keysight’s MMIC portfolio offers designers an optimized tradeoff of performance, power, size and cost. The broadband performance of our devices allows full bandwidth designs and eliminates narrow band, switched path architectures that are complex, power hungry and ultimately, expensive. RFMW’s worldwide organization of RF experienced sales people are uniquely positioned to understand the benefits Keysight brings to the market and can engage appropriate customers early in their design process to help them realize their broadband designs with the quickest time-to-market.”
According to Joel Levine, President and CEO of RFMW Ltd., “Keysight products offer some unique and technically advanced solutions for customers developing broadband product for applications such as aerospace and defense. The diversity of products can also populate many of the blocks in a transceiver front end. With current and future radio development, these devices will find homes in a wide range of applications and complement other devices in our supplier’s portfolios enabling the RFMW sales team to better support new product designs.”
