Our skills

Alaris Linwave a trusted expert in External Engineered Enterprise Solutions

RF & Microwave design and manufacturing capability Card Image
RF & Microwave Design and Manufacturing Capability

Within the supply chain – Linwave specialise in supporting Tier 2 Integrated sub systems, Tier 3 Modules, and chip level components. We define our customers typically as Original equipment manufacturers for mission systems or wider product solutions.

Ultra High Frequency Experience Card Image
Ultra-High Frequency Experience

Linwave have supported numerous projects operating at excess of 77GHz. W band applications require the ability to work with bare die and understand the limitations of small wavelengths.

Custom MMIC Hybrid Solutions Card Image
Custom MMIC Hybrid Solutions

Linwave Technology offers custom MMIC solutions. Linwave has the ability to package MMIC devices that are currently only available as die hence making a much wider range of components available. This service is available to MMIC manufacturers or to end users who only have access to SMT manufacturing.

Design of Housings & Hermetic Enclosures Card Image
Design of Housing & Hermetic Enclosures

One of the key aspects of custom module design is the choice of environmental protection for the application. Selection of the package or enclosure is the primary consideration for ease of interfacing with the system but also protection to ensure long term service life.

Harsh Environment Design Proving Card Image
Harsh Environment Design Proving

We have a unique range of products working in high reliability applications around the world. These range from the depths of Naval submarines and elevations of high-altitude avionics, to Road and Marine navigation safety; communication via satellite; and enabling latest medical therapies.

Integration of Embedded Software Card Image
Integration of Embedded Software

In many microwave assembly solutions there is a requirement for some form of embedded digital control. Linwave implements interfaces to its products ranging from minimal RS232 to fully integrated communication protocols such as Ethernet or CanBus.

Automated Testing & Programming Capability Card Image
Automated Testing & Programming Capability

Linwave offers an ATE programming service. Our significant experience of programming RF test and automation applications allows us to offer our customers value-added product integration and production test solutions.

Product GUIs and support Capability Card Image
Product GUI’s & Support Capability

Graphical User Interfaces can be provided for customer test interfacing or for product field implementation. These can vary from the test implementation support for system integration to full user interface for end customer testing.

Obsolescence Re-engineering & management Card Image
Obsolescence Re-engineering & Management

Obsolescence issues are becoming more common in the RF world due to both the rapidly advancing nature of semiconductor processing driving changes to fabrication methods and production capacity, and the ongoing mergers and acquisition activity in the market-place leading to a wholesale review of the profitability of semiconductor product portfolios.

Fast Prototyping Capability Card Image
Fast Prototyping Capability

Linwave can respond to fast turn requirements using our internal pcb router for fast turn cct evaluation. Once RF performance needs are established we have a sub-contract partnerships that can supply metalwork to our CAD designs in days, combined with fast turn pcb for RF and electronic ccts. Boards can be assembled internally or via one of fast turn sub-con partners where needed.

New Product Introduction (NPI) Process Management Card Image
New Product Introduction (NPI) Process Management

Supply of custom solutions benefits from an efficient new product introduction process, enabling Linwave to follow a structured path that starts with a launch review to capture the key requirements and ensure they are in line with expectations. Design and contractual parameters are confirmed and recorded. At this point key risks to managed are initially defined.
