UMS was created in 1996 as an independent joint venture between Thales and EADS Deutschland GmbH to provide a European source of III-V technologies and products. With production facilities located at Ulm in Germany and Villebon/Yvette in France, UMS offers a broad range of standard MMICs, along with an open foundry service for customers’ own designs.

Stuart Hendry, Link Microtek’s Sales Director, was delighted with the new agreement: “This is an important addition to our portfolio as it will give customers access to leading-edge MMIC technology without any ITAR restrictions. As well as offering a comprehensive range of GaAs MMICs for applications up to 110GHz, UMS also provides the only GaN foundry service in Europe, which will be of particular interest to designers of high-power systems.”

The UMS range of standard MMICs encompasses products such as power amplifiers, low-noise amplifiers, attenuators, up- and down-converters, mixers, multipliers, dividers, oscillators and phase shifters, together with chipset solutions tailored to the requirements of the defence, space, automotive and telecoms sectors.

Vincent Hirtzberger, UMS’s Business Development Manager Europe, said: “In Link Microtek we have found an organisation with a genuine understanding of our key markets, backed by a real depth of technical competence, and we are pleased to be working in partnership with them in the UK and Ireland.”
