    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Microwave Associates began life in the summer of 1950 in a small rented space in Boston, Massachusetts by providing magnetrons to the U.S. Army Signal Corps. In the years to follow, the company firmly established itself as a technological powerhouse by continued significant investment in research and development (R&D). This commitment to R&D is a tenet that still stands with the company today. The proof, of course, is in the industry-leading reputation that M/A-COM continues to enjoy.

In 1978 Microwave Associates legally changed its name to M/A-COM, Inc. to reflect its involvement in the growing communications market. Today, M/A-COM continues to expand into new areas. Still a major player in aerospace and defense-related industries, M/A-COM also has brought their expertise to the wireless telecommunications, automotive and private land-mobile radio markets.

Today, M/A-COM is part of the growing family of Tyco International companies, and is a unit of Tyco Electronics, the largest business unit of Tyco International. M/A-COM has manufacturing facilities, design centers and sales offices throughout the globe. And as always, M/A-COM is pushing technical boundaries and establishing new ground in the markets that we serve.
