MicroFab representation in SoCal and AZ

QuantumFlow is glad to announce our Southern California and Arizona representation of MicroFab - MicroFab, Inc. specializes in manufacturing thin film circuits and other thin-film products. Circuits can be manufactured to your drawing specifications, or a custom thin film circuit can be designed to your specifications. Ion beam etching technology provides a superior etching process over conventional chemical etching. With ion beam etching, there is no undercutting or cross-contamination, resulting in better overall RF circuit performance.

Turbo Cloverleaf Omni Antennas

Southwest Antennas is pleased to announce their newly updated line of rugged cloverleaf omni-directional antennas. These antennas are available in both left hand and right hand circular polarization, which is ideal for air-to-ground RF links or use in multi-antenna configurations, where multiple antennas of opposite polarization are used to increase isolation between co-located antennas.

 Three frequency options are available:
