API Technologies Corp. (API) of Marlborough, Mass., a provider of high-performance RF and microwave signal conditioning and electromagnetic spectrum management solutions, has entered into a collaboration arrangement with Norwood, Mass.-based Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), a high-performance analog technology company. Using API’s U.K.-based facilities, the parties will collaborate on the production of custom, high-reliability electronic modules and assemblies.
This alliance is designed to permit ADI’s wide range of high-performance integrated circuit (IC) and high-speed digital signal processing technology to integrate with API’s value-added engineering services, footprint reduction and miniaturization technologies, and in-house production, manufacturing and testing capabilities. The venture will allow API to deliver a UK-designed and manufactured, integrated high performance solution directly to U.K. and European customers to support their custom aerospace and defense mission critical requirements.
In order to reduce time to market, API and ADI sales forces plan to cooperatively identify and direct to API those U.K. and European aerospace and defense customers who are seeking a solution that integrates ADI’s proprietary semiconductor and IC technologies within a custom-designed API module.
“We are very excited about our growing relationship with ADI, which has been important in Europe to both companies for more than 15 years,” said Richard Farrington, Managing Director and Vice President, API Technologies U.K. “Through this alliance, both ADI and API will better serve our European customers through a comprehensive forward-looking portfolio of U.K.-designed, industry-leading solutions for the global high reliability electronics market.”
“Our expanded collaboration with API strengthens our commitment to our European customers for the highest quality Analog Devices solutions for innovative assemblies and integrated circuits, now delivered from Europe through API’s U.K.-based engineering, design and manufacturing operations,” said Bryan Goldstein, General Manager, Aerospace and Defense Business Unit, Analog Devices.
