TRUMPF Hüttinger Microwave
One important application is transistor-based solid-state power amplifiers which are increasingly replacing electron tubes in particle accelerators for research, medical and industrial applications.
We offer microwave generators for industrial heating and coating processes. Solutions with power measuring several kilowatts, based on chip technology, can be applied.
In the area of communications, we develop Software Defined Radio (SDR) applications and manufacture using state-of-the-art technologies and components, such as chip on board, GaN as heatspreader, LTCC (Low Temperature Cofired Ceramics) as well as thick-film and thin-film ceramics.
X-band and S-band amplifiers are developed for space applications, for Synthetic Aperture Radar satellites, for example. Our clean room facilities enable the production of highly developed microwave and radar technologies of outstanding quality.
Our core business
Our microwave products are constructed using semiconductor-based chip technology and provide our customers in the science and industrial sectors innovative and upgraded solutions for microwave applications. The core business is made up of software-controlled microwave generators and amplifiers which are used as customer-optimized products in the area of high frequency communications, for heating processes and state-of-the-art science, such as particle accelerators, among other things.
TRUMPF Hüttinger took over the microwave technology company HBH Microwave in January 2020. TRUMPF Hüttinger extended its technology portfolio to include solid-state microwave generators with this acquisition. Particle accelerators for research, medicine and industry is another important market the company is keeping its eye on. Furthermore, TRUMPF Hüttinger can develop its business in the particle accelerator market with this addition.
The most frequent application areas for particle accelerators can be found in fundamental research, medicine and future industry. Radiotherapy and particle radiation therapy are some of the medical applications used for treating cancer. Our customer-specific developments and series products are used in this area as well. Based on our modular concept, individual components such as amplifiers, power supply systems or even control units can be easily and quickly replaced. Targeted component redundancy prevents an uncontrolled system failure or power and beam loss in the particle accelerator.
