Spectrum Control High-Performance SAW Filters & SAW Oscillators

Spectrum Control High-Performance SAW Filters & SAW Oscillators
Together with Spectrum Control (formerly known as APItech), Heynen offers a wide range of high quality Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) product solutions, both standard and customized. We believe in a flexible approach from the drawing table up to production. With over 50 years of design and development expertise in Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) products, Spectrum Control provides SAW filters, oscillators and delay line solutions for the military, space and commercial markets of today.
SAW Technology can be found all sorts of applications with signal processing such as RFID, mobile devices, touchscreen displays, satellite communication and also considered of major importance in military missiles and tactical radio equipment.
One of the 'keys to success' for Spectrum Control is their in-house wafer fab technology and advanced design-/simulation software that allows them to leverage their expertise acquired over the last 40 years. This means we can build to the requirements and needs of your application.

High performance is the cornerstone of our SAW Oscillator designs. Spectrum Control utilizes a low jitter planar SAW which translates to extremely low phase noise performance and exceptionally low accumulated jitter. This is excellent for use in SATCOM equipment.
We stand for what we design and produce. In order to warrant the quality Spectrum Control SAW Oscillators undergo rigorous testing which include; constant acceleration, vibration testing, and stability bake. We use a low loss planar SAW device as the frequency controlling element. By adding multiple complimentary features including gold for low loss and kovar SAW packages results in a product with inherent high reliability to meet the most demanding requirements.
Below is an overview of their capabilities and facilities;
  • Certified to ISO 9001:2001 and AS9100-B
  • Quality control system compliant to AS9100-B
  • ANSI/Z540-1-1994 compliant calibration
  • Screening available to the test methods of MIL-STD-883
  • Performs 100% wafer probe testing for every SAW die
  • Class 100 Clean Rooms • 8,000 SAW die per hour throughput rates
