StratEdge, J microTechnology, and Accel-RF Host MMIC Packaging, Testing, and Reliability Seminar at MTT-S

MTT-S 2006
Booth #425
SAN DIEGO--()--April 26, 2006--StratEdge, leader in the design and production of semiconductor packages for microwave, millimeter wave, and high speed digital devices, along with J microTechnology and Accel-RF, announced they will be hosting a seminar on monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) packaging, testing, and reliability on June 14, 2006, at Moscone Center in San Francisco in conjunction with the MTT-S trade show.

The seminar will feature three experts in packaging and testing of high frequency devices. Jerry Carter, senior applications engineer for StratEdge, will discuss the latest package technologies and assembly techniques for microwave and millimeter wave MMICs. Jerry Schappacher, an expert on probe technology, will discuss testing methods and probe stations for testing bare and packaged MMICs up through 65GHz. Roland Shaw, president of Accel-RF, will discuss accelerated life-test/burn-in test systems for compound semiconductor devices, which are used in the implementation of broadband wireless infrastructures and networks.

"We are excited to be able to hold this seminar during MTT-S, which is one of the pre-eminent trade shows for microwave theory and techniques," said StratEdge President and CEO Tim Going. "We've had many questions about how to package and test MMICs. The seminar offers an opportunity for engineers to see the packages and test equipment and speak to the applications engineers to better understand how to maximize the characteristics of their own MMICs."

The seminar is by invitation only. For more details or if you wish to attend the seminar, contact Hannah Foster at 858-569-5000 x130, h.foster@stratedge.com.
