Richardson RFPD has signed a global franchise agreement with ERZIA Technologies. Headquartered in Santander, Spain, ERZIA is a specialist in the design and manufacture of solid-state amplifiers to provide rugged and high-reliability solutions for a range of applications, including communications, test and measurement, radar, and electronic warfare.
The agreement covers ERZIA’s commercial off-the-shelf products, including high-power/driver amplifier (HPA) modules and low noise amplifier (LNA) modules. ERZIA’s broad product offering covers DC to 100GHz, with connectorised and wave guide interfaces. All of ERZIA’s COTS products are ITAR-free designs and offer a high degree of customiation.
“We are excited about ERZIA’s broad capabilities, flexibility, quality and reliability,” said Rafael R. Salmi, Ph.D., Richardson RFPD’s president. “This product range is a good fit for Richardson RFPD’s customers and target markets. Many customers today prefer to purchase amplifiers as a component in order to integrate into a more complex system, and ERZIA’s products fit that need.”
“We look forward to working with Richardson RFPD’s global sales force, and we are confident that our HPA and LNA modules will be attractive to Richardson RFPD’s customers looking to improve time-to-market and reduce risk with these high-reliability devices,” said Luis García, ERZIA’s CEO.
Richardson RFPD is franchised for ERZIA’s full line of COTS modules and will initially stock 14 models. Inventory is expected by January 2020 and is available for immediate preorder.
