Plextek RFI extends RF-on-wafer clean room facilities

 Plextek RFI, a UK design house specialising in microwave and millimetre-wave IC design, has significantly extended the RF-on-wafer (RFOW) clean room facilities at its design centre in Cambridge for the evaluation of both packaged and unpackaged semiconductor devices.

“Our new capability includes equipment suitable for the evaluation of ICs – either as bare die, on undiced wafers or packaged – and modules, at frequencies up to 50GHz,” said Liam Devlin, CEO of Plextek RFI. “In addition to our RFOW probe station with vector network analyser and spectrum analyser for the characterisation of ICs and modules, we also have a fully-automated IP3 measurement set-up.”


About Plextek RF Integration

Plextek RFI is a UK-based design house specialising in the design and development of RFICs, MMICs and microwave/mmWave modules. We have designed over 100 custom ICs at frequencies ranging from baseband to 100GHz and are a third party design house for Wolfspeed, GCS, Qorvo and WIN. Our designs are used in a wide range of applications from test instrumentation to infrastructure equipment and very high volume consumer wireless devices. We have in-house test facilities for both bare die (RFOW) and SMT packaged components. Our microwave and mmWave module development activity encompasses a wide range of technologies including conventional SMT on laminate substrates, High Density Interconnect (HDI), chip and wire, thin film, thick film and LTCC.For more information please visit
