Crane A&E’s Microwave group provides customised integrated microwave solutions and components for the aerospace and defence industries. Crane builds high-performance RF and IF components for customers in the defence sector. The company boasts an extensive experience in military, communications and electronic warfare systems.

Crane’s Multi-Mix Microtechnology is an innovative process for fusing multilayer integrated circuits and micro-multifunction modules (MMFM®). This process is based on fluoropolymer composite substrates, which are bonded together into a multilayer structure using a fusion bonding process. This technology allows the integration of active and passive functions into self-contained modules that are a fraction of the size of conventional hybrid units.

Benefits:

  • Integration of Active RF and Passive RF components
  • Reduce size, weight and component costs
  • Reduce parts count and complexity
