MBT appoints Link Microtek as exclusive UK representative
Massachusetts Bay Technologies, the US manufacturer of discrete semiconductor devices, has appointed Link Microtek as its exclusive representative in the UK and Ireland. Founded in 1999, MBT designs and manufactures a comprehensive range of silicon RF/microwave semiconductor devices at its facility in Stoughton, Massachusetts.
Standard products include tuning varactors, PIN diodes, Schottky diodes, limiter diodes, step recovery diodes and various passive components.
Commenting on the tie-up between the two companies, Stuart Hendry, Link Microtek’s sales director, said: “We are extremely pleased to be working in partnership with MBT. Their discrete semiconductor devices are a perfect complement to our product portfolio, and we are certain that a number of our existing customers will be very interested in what they have to offer.
“One of their particular strengths is supplying components as replacements for other manufacturers’ obsolete parts, and the fact that they have their own wafer fab gives them total control over product quality and availability.”
With operating frequencies ranging from 100Hz to over 100GHz, MBT’s products are suitable for use in a variety of commercial and military applications. Available package styles include ceramic and plastic surface mount, ceramic pill, glass axial leaded, beam lead and chip.
Brian Fallon, president of MBT, was also enthusiastic about the new agreement: “As a well established supplier of RF and microwave components, Link Microtek has demonstrated not only first-class knowledge of the market but also real expertise in discrete semiconductor technology. We believe this will be a fruitful relationship and are excited about the opportunities that will open up for us in the UK and Ireland.”
