For over 30 years, Farran have been on the leading-edge of millimetre-wave development. Serving emerging and mature markets, covering Test & Measurement, Radar & Imaging, Communications, Research and Aerospace. Farran offers a wide range of Test & Measurement systems such as VNA Extenders, Noise Figure Analyser and Frequency Extension Sources from 40 GHz to 500GHz. Farran also offers Waveguide based components, which include Amplifiers, Detectors, Frequency Converters, Mixers, Multipliers and Gunn Oscillator Sources.
Farran Technology has invested heavily in its capabilities for the design and manufacture of multi-chip MMIC band modules in the frequency range 10-100 GHz. As a custom manufacturer of components and subsystems we offer you our wealth of expertise.
Farran has placed a strong emphasis on the development of integrated in-house facilities to provide the highest quality standards and fast delivery times. The company continues to invest in state-of-the-art software design tools, test & measurement equipment, prototyping equipment, semi-automated assembly equipment and automated CNC equipment.
Throughout its history Farran Technology Engineering has been renowned for working at the leading edge of mm-Wave Technology. Today this is still our goal. We work in conjuction with several acedemic establishments, including the Tyndall Institiute, Cork, on collaborative research projects. We are actively involved in projects funded by ESA and the EEC. It is from these projects that some of our product lines are derived. A major proportion of our engineering is directed at manufacturing processes, to ensure our products have consistent performance and reliability. This is not only important for our military products, but also ensures on time delivery to specification.
Our engineering staff have come from many academic and industry backgrounds and their skills range from fundamental microwave semiconductor research through to the practical engineering of complete mm-wave systems. Our design tools include Ansoft HFSS electromagnetic simulation and Agilent ADS for mm-Wave circuit design.
The research and development activity is back up by a solid mechanical engineering design capability. Our design office has many years experience in mechanical design for manufacture and for specific environmental conditions. We make extensive use of the capabilties of Autodesk Inventor and Mechnical Desktop. By use of Edgecam we can quickly transfer designs to the CNC machining facility.
