Diamond Microwave Relocates Design and Laboratory Functions

Diamond Microwave, a maker of high-performance GaN-based microwave power amplifiers, has moved into a new facility at the historic Salts Mill in Saltaire, near Shipley, in the UK. The facility will now house its design and laboratory functions.

“Our new location offers us attractive surroundings within a UNESCO World Heritage Site, much closer to good national rail links and only 20 minutes from Leeds Bradford International airport. Saltaire and Shipley have excellent local facilities, and have a history of developing innovative electronics businesses,” said Richard Lang, Diamon Microwave managing director.

Diamond Microwave produces GaN-based solid-state power amplifiers (SSPA) that it customizes for use in defense and communications applications. The company contends that its amplifiers offer high-power performance combined with a power-to-volume ratio which is amongst the highest in the industry among competing products.
