Auriga Measurement Systems changes name to Auriga Microwave to reflect module focus

Auriga Measurement Systems LLC of Lowell, MA, USA, which provides design, modeling and measurement products and services for RF, microwave and millimeter-wave device technologies, has changed its name to Auriga Microwave in order to better signify the firm’s strength and direction as the firm moves from a predominately test & measurement company to a provider of microwave solutions.

Building upon its strong ‘Auriga’ brand, Auriga Microwave expands the firm’s products and services to include design and manufacture of RF modules, particularly power amplifiers. Leveraging the team’s experience, the firm’s goal is to provide high-performance microwave modules to system integrators, principally for the US Department of Defense.

“Since mid-2007, we have won seven Phase I SBIR (Small Business Innovative Research) awards, and will have graduated six of them to Phase II SBIRs by Q2 of this year,” says Auriga Microwave’s president & CEO Bruce Cohen. “Our power amplifier and front-end solutions are principally built on gallium nitride- or gallium arsenide-based technology; and with our modeling background and team-oriented creativity, we are able to deliver balanced solutions that meet or exceed customers’ specifications,” he adds.

Auriga will continue to develop and manufacture test equipment, but anticipates long-term growth to come from its design and manufacture of high-performance modules. Solutions aim to provide: higher output power; improved efficiency; better linearity; wider bandwidth; smaller size; and lighter weight, the firm adds.
