CPI is the recognized world leader in the design and production of oscillators and amplifiers operating at millimeter-wave frequencies (25 GHz to 700 GHz). CPI SMP's Extended Interaction Klystron (EIK) technology provides a compact and rugged platform for oscillators and amplifiers generating tens to thousands of watts of RF power, over bandwidths up to 2%.

CPI SMP has an extensive catalogue of existing pulsed and CW oscillators and amplifiers. CPI SMP's true strength, however, lies in the company's ability to rapidly respond to new product requests. Whether you require production-run quantities or a single prototype, CPI SMP is pleased to respond to new performance needs. CPI SMP's team of design engineers, assemblers and test technicians is dedicated to new product development and production. The company offers a fast, flexible factory with a strong customer focus.

Applications for our millimeter wave technology (mmW or mm wave technology) include millimeter wave radar, such as Cloud Profiling Radar (CPR) and cloud cover radar or airport runway foreign object detection. 263 GHz CW oscillators are used for Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) whereas 263 GHz pulsed amplifiers are used for Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) or Electron Spin Resonance (ESR). Terahertz imaging often requires THz illuminators to increase signal to noise. There are an infinite number of applications for our millimeter wave amplifiers and oscillators – talk to us about your application needs.
