SYPRIS FEATURES MICROWAVE TESTING AT IEEE SYMPOSIUM
Opens test suite to design engineers and project developers
ORLANDO, Fla. (June 1, 2005) Sypris Test & Measurement, a subsidiary of Sypris Solutions, Inc., today
announced it will feature its microwave testing capabilities at the International Microwave Symposium, June 14-16
at Long Beach Convention Center, Long Beach, Calif., sponsored by The Institute of Electrical and Electronics
"We're excited that Sypris is one of the few companies offering microwave testing on a third-party
basis," said Mike McEntee, Corporate Strategic Alliances, Sypris Test & Measurement. "Our abilities in this arena
allow smaller companies an affordable method of testing ideas, designs and equipment without the costly expense
associated with construction of a microwave test suite."
Sypris has also opened its doors to participate in
project development, allowing qualified outside engineers and project developers to test components and equipment,
and perform subsequent testing, throughout the design process.
"Many companies and engineers have great ideas," said McEntee. "Few can justify capitalizing a full test
suite for a single idea. By opening our doors to design engineers and project developers, we're providing a test
venue for good ideas that might otherwise slip through the cracks. Our engineers have the depth of experience
needed to assist in the design process to bring an idea to production."
Microwave testing is radio frequency (RF) testing of frequencies above 1 gigahertz (GHz.). Sypris
currently offers a robust suite of RF and microwave testing, including component qualification, life test,
characterization and burn- in/environmental tests. Current RF and microwave test parameters include P1dB, Pin,
Pout, Psat, G1dB, GL, IMP3, MSG, MAG, Insertion Loss, Return Loss VSWR, small signal gain S-parameters, Ig, IgrL,
Idss, gm, and Idrf.
Sypris performs extensive environmental and component testing for manufacturers of
microwave equipment nationwide. Sypris customers who choose Sypris for RF and microwave testing benefit from more
than 40 years of component and product testing experience and from the precision, rigor and exceptional service
that have become hallmarks of Sypris Test & Measurement.
"Our performance in the RF and microwave test
area is yet another demonstration of our commitment to providing the finest quality service for the test and
measurement industry," said Kathy Boyd, Sypris Test & Measurement president and CEO.
Sypris's will be
located in booth 2104 at the Long Beach Convention Center.
