Characterization Room

 

 

MC2-Technologies is an european leader in term of microwave measurement services. Indeed, we provide a complete characterisation service to our costumers up to 220GHz.

Electrical modeling

 

 

MC2-Technologies offers an electrical modelling service of microwave devices. The company has developed accurate linear and non linear modelling approaches using DC and microwave measurements.

Design of microwave circuits

 

MC2-Technologies develops custom microwave devices. The company provides a large range of circuits from a simple microwave amplifier to a complete T/R module. Design can be done from the electrical models of customers, funderies and also from ours. Mechanical assembling, brasing, wire bondings and characterization are available on MC2-Technologies site.

Reliability: DC & RF life tests

 

 

MC2-Technologies also provides a service of reliability measurements under RF or DC conditions (RF and DC life test).

A complete specific test bench can be developped on demand for your needs.

Electrical modelling

MC2-Technologies offers an electrical modelling service of microwave devices. The company has developed accurate linear and non linear modelling approaches using a large panel of DC and microwave measurements. Electrical modelling can be based on several types of model (EES, black box, empirical, neuronal…) following the requests of our costomers. MC2-Technologies can also customize an electrical model.
