Quantic® Electronics, a portfolio company of Arcline Investment Management, has announced the acquisition of M Wave Design, a leading supplier of ferrite-based RF and Microwave components for aerospace, defense, and quantum computing applications.

Founded in 1988, M-Wave designs and manufactures passive waveguide and coaxial components, including isolators, circulators, adapters and terminations. The company has a long history of supporting leading-edge RF and microwave development in high power and low loss passive designs. M-Wave’s product portfolio is uniquely positioned to supply components that perform at cryogenic temperatures used in quantum computing applications.

ITAR registered and certified to ISO 9001:2008, M-Wave offer full products traceability from purchasing through too shipment. Key capabilities include vertically integrated manufacturing for improved lead times, a dedicated machining center, stocks of raw materials to reduce lead times, CNC circuit prototyping and direct from CAD to process to reduce design verification and iterations.

The M-Wave CAD design centre for mechanical and electrical modelling offers 3D device modelling and direct transfer to the machine center for rapid prototyping and production. An extensive design library of over 2000 ‘heritage’ RF and microwave components developed over the last 25 years is also available.

M-Wave’s RF test laboratory covers 50 MHz to 60 GHz and includes power testing and cryogenic capabilities down to 70 degrees Kelvin.

Key strengths of the company include passive microwave components design and manufacturing; waveguide and co-axial ferrite products such as high-power and low-loss isolators and circulators; waveguide passives such as adapters and terminations; and both cutting edge and ‘lost’ technologies.

“We are delighted to add M-Wave to the Quantic portfolio of businesses,” said Ross Sealfon, Chief Executive Officer, Quantic Electronics. “The M-Wave product portfolio perfectly complements our current product line up. Additionally, M-Wave’s deep expertise in quantum computing and long history supporting military and space programs further enhances our ability to solve our customers’ difficult design challenges.”
