CPI's Beverly Microwave Division (CPI BMD) is a major designer and manufacturer of pulsed magnetrons for medical, military, commercial, industrial and university users worldwide. CPI BMD offers magnetron products ranging from 915 Mhz up to 35 GHz in frequency and at power levels from 100 watts to 35 MW. Frequency tuning schemes are available from fixed frequency to mechanically tuned to sophisticated frequency agility mechanisms.

Long life and resultant low cost of ownership have been the cornerstone of CPI BMD’s design and manufacturing philosophy for almost 50 years. Solutions to customer’s diverse requirements are supported by the widest range of standard magnetrons available. We also understand evolving requirements may require custom magnetron designs. CPI has the engineering and manufacturing expertise required to support most any magnetron application.
