Production of RF & Microwave Circuits and Modules

ALTAIX Electrónica started in 2008, to provide Integration and Assembly services of RF & Microwave circuits to satisfy the increasing need of some companies to outsource their non-core technological activities.

In 2009, we installed a clean room and all the necessary assembly and measurement equipment, to manufacture RF & Microwave circuits and modules.
