May 19, 2004 — Microfabrica Inc., a Burbank, Calif.-based microsystems fabrication firm, has delivered to the Air Force Research Laboratory a series of radio frequency and microwave devices based on Microfabrica’s EFAB technology, according to a news release.
Air Force engineers at the Antenna Technology Unit conceived and designed the devices, including filters, couplers, inductors and variable capacitors. The development demonstrates the suitability of EFAB for numerous RF applications for military use, the release said.
Microfabrica, founded in 1999 as MEMGen, developed the EFAB platform, which integrates 3-D computer-aided design with MEMS manufacturing processes. The company says its system can provide mass-production capability without a clean room.
