Knowles, a provider of a wide variety of highly engineered Capacitors and Microwave to Millimeter Wave components announced the acquisition of Integrated Microwave Corporation. IMC is a leading designer and manufacturer of precision RF and microwave filters and multiplexers, quadrature couplers and ceramic coaxial resonators. IMC is AS9100D certified and they work with all major defense contractors, NASA, JPL, APL, Blue Origin, SpaceX as well as a number of commercial entities delivering EM, qualification, flight hardware, lab use hardware and test fixtures in prototype to production quantities. IMC is a proud supplier to NASA and has participated in every Mars mission since 2000.
All their products are made at their plant in San Diego, California. Design, manufacturing and most testing services are done in-house for greater efficiency and faster lead times. With this acquisition, the Knowles Precision Devices Microwave group can offer a complete range of RF and Microwave filtering solutions supporting VHF to Ka-band. In addition to the small, temperature-stable filters they can also deliver ceramic and cavity filters for lower frequency and/or higher power applications.
Founded in 1982, Integrated Microwave is a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of custom precision RF microwave filters and multiplexers for the aerospace, defense and communications industries.
