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

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
