Taiwan-based subsidiary Mimix Asia becomes M/A-COM Tech Asia

As part of June‘s merger that added Mimix Broadband Inc of Houston, TX, USA and its subsidiaries to M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA (which supplies semiconductors, components, and subassemblies for use in RF, microwave and millimeter-wave applications), Mimix Asia of Hsinchu Science-Based Industrial Park, Taiwan has changed its operating name to M/A-COM Tech Asia.

M/A-COM Tech Asia designs and manufactures products addressing microwave and millimeter-wave applications. Its facility is ISO 9001-registered and includes a Class 10,000 cleanroom for die picking and visual inspection and 8000 square feet of production floor space. It also has an ISO 9001-registered design center in Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK for product development and qualification with comprehensive assembly & test facilities for device design.

“M/A-COM Tech Asia offers high-power and highly integrated devices,“ says Robert Dennehy, who has been named its managing director. “As a member of the M/A-COM Tech family of companies, we can provide complete block diagram solutions that are unmatched by our competitors, and our unique S- and X-band core chips, like the XZ1001-BD and XZ1002-BD respectively, provide a high degree of functionality that greatly simplify the design task for transmit and receive modules," he claims.

Dennehy began his career with M/A-COM Technology Solutions in 1993, was promoted to operational management positions and ultimately transitioned to product management. He has led operations and development teams addressing multiple product lines, ranging from circulators and isolators, switches, voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs) and synthesizers to various signal processing components and passives modules.

Previously with the company and maintaining their roles are senior director Peter J. Hales, technical director Dr Alexandre Bessemoulin, applications engineering manager Ken Golden, and general manager Min Hong Sir.

M/A-COM Tech Asia will showcase the company and its products at the European Microwave Week (EuMW) exhibition in Paris, France (28-30 September).
