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 Engineers (IEEE).
"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.
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.
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

"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.
