Fostering New Trends in MMIC Design


Aelius Semiconductors' MMIC design team carries a combined 70+ man years of dedicated MMIC design experience.

Each engineer works with industry standard MMIC CAD software that includes circuit simulators like Agilent ADS, AWR Microwave Office along with ADS momentum, MWO Axiem and Sonnet for EM simulation.

In addition, they have access to other high-end software for 3D EM simulation. The former Microelectronic Technologies Division of Astra Microwave Products Ltd (AMPL) which grew to be India's largest and best equipped GaAs MMIC design and production house, was spun off as a 100% subsidiary - Aelius Semiconductors Pte Ltd in Singapore.

Aelius has access to the state-of-the-art assembly, test and packaging facility available at AMPL which includes RF on-wafer probing test and measurement facility.

On-wafer RF probing provides an excellent platform to validate and fine tune designs.

Aelius also has access to the largest Space Qualified MMIC assembly and test facility at AMPL. Packaging of MMICs is also undertaken as per customer requirement. Using this facility, Ceramic and hermetically sealed and packaged MMIC components can be delivered to customers. For Hermetically sealed packages, gross and fine leak test can be conducted. Our Environmental test facility is capable of carrying out MIL grade, Jedec as well as IEC compliant qualification tests that include Temperature-cycling, Burn-in, Mechanical Shock, Three Axis Vibration and Thermo-Vacuum tests.
