Hunter Technology Corp. has acquired Spectral Response LLC, an electronics manufacturing company that provides design and manufacturing services to RF OEMs and other electronics companies. The acquisition of Spectral Response was the second major purchase in the last six months for Hunter Technology, an EMS provider based in Milpitas, Calif. Last October, the company bought the assets of NBS Designs, also headquartered in Milpitas. Hunter Technology President Joseph O’Neil said with the acquisition of NBS’ assets, his company “added significant engineering resources in PCB design, gained leading-edge DF(x) review capability, doubled our floor space [and] tripled our SMT capacity.” With the acquisition of Spectral Response’s assets, Hunter Technology can offer OEM customers design, new product introduction, volume manufacturing and test, tune and integration in both California and Georgia. It can also provide warranty, repair and third-party logistics services. “For OEMs who value ‘Made in the USA,’ we have them covered from coast to coast,” said O’Neil. The company said the recent acquisition will help Hunter lower costs and reduce time-to-market through the use of design and engineering solutions combined with vertical integration. Hunter Technology’s customers include OEMs in high-reliability industries such as medical, networking, test, measurement, defense and aerospace. It helps design and manufacture frequency synthesizers, microwave receivers, up/down converters and MM-wave subsystems.

In 2018, the IEEE Radar Conference arrives in vibrant Oklahoma City for the first time. Being centrally located in the US, OKC is known for great Southern cuisine, Midwestern hospitality, and a good helping of Wild West cowboy culture. Nearby Norman, OK is also the home of NOAA’s National Severe Storms Laboratory and the Advanced Radar Research Center at the University of Oklahoma, who collectively have driven much of the modern-day weather radar technology in the US. Do not miss this exciting week filled with novel radar advances and down-home fun.
For more than 30 years, the combined annual Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits has been the world’s premier mid-year conference for microelectronics technology, providing an opportunity for the world’s top device technologists, circuit and system designers to exchange leading-edge ideas. Held together since 1987, the Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits have alternated each year between sites in the US and Japan, enabling attendees to learn about new directions in the development of VLSI technology & circuit design through the industry’s leading research and development presentations.
The comprehensive technical programs at the two Symposia – fully overlapping again this year – are supplemented with short courses, invited speakers and several evening panel sessions. Since 2012, the Symposia have presented joint focus sessions that include invited and contributed papers on topics of mutual interest to both technology and circuit attendees. A single registration enables participants to attend both Symposia.
