Marki Microwave acquires Precision Millimeter Wave
Marki Microwave in the US has acquired the assets of the waveguide business of Precision Millimeter Wave, a leading supplier of sub-THz waveguide technology in Morgan Hill, California.
The acquisition expands the reach of Marki Microwave into the mmWave and sub-THz markets by combining waveguide and traditional board-level connection methods for emerging communication platforms such as 6G as it extends into D band, point-to-point communications and space systems.
“The addition of Precision Millimeter Wave’s technology portfolio is a natural progression of Marki’s support for high frequency applications, reinforcing our commitment to advanced component development for the RF signal chain,” said Christopher Marki, CEO of Marki Microwave. “Precision’s robust portfolio extends our frequency range to sub-THz, expanding our addressable markets in applications where we already lead, while opening up new applications areas.”
The deal means Marki Microwave can now offer over 100 standard commercial waveguide products and multiple custom waveguide products spanning mmWave to sub-THz, including antennas, connectors, switches and isolators.
- Metastructures enable THz chips for 6G
- R&S teams for THz 6G research in France
- Keysight receives license for developing sub-terahertz 6G
“Marki Microwave has an industry-wide reputation for developing cutting-edge products, having invested heavily in design resources and expertise covering operation, packaging and integration,” said Gary Ricker, co-founder of Precision Millimeter Wave and Marki Microwave’s senior manager of waveguide product marketing.
“We have developed a broad yet synergistic customer base that opens new product categories and markets for Marki Microwave. I’m thrilled to begin driving next-generation waveguide product development backed by Marki’s history of excellence.”
