Microwave engineer recruited to work on SMDs

LONDON — Labtech Microwave (Milton Keynes, England) has appointed Stephen Melvin as their new principal engineer, with the aim of developing the company’s monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMIC) packaging and liquid crystal polymer (LCP) product ranges.

Prior to joining Labtech Microwave Melvin was the senior design engineer for RFMD (formerly Filtronic Compound Semiconductors), where he designed MMICs for power amplifiers as well as microwave radio components and broadband MIC amplifiers for electronic warfare applications.

According to Robert Lowther, sales and marketing director at Labtech Microwave, Melvin will also be working on new surface-mount switch and amplifiers, a consequence of the growing trend in demand for these products and drop-in configurations as opposed to connecterised low-power metal PIN switches.
