IMA_Subsys

Overview

MPG Solutions® Subsystems & IMA's offer up to 20 channels and consistent delivery over a frequency range of 10 MHz to 40 GHz. By incorporating any topology into the switch filter banks, from high-Q cavity or dielectric resonators to printed thin-film filters, we deliver unmatched performance. Additional flexibility is created by incorporating amplification, frequency conversion, and limiters as well as BIT function. MPG also has high power options supporting a variety of communications and jammer products.
