When did your name changed from Technical Research and Manufacturing?In 2010 Technical Research and Manufacturing underwent a logo and name change. We are now Doing Business As - TRM Microwave - to better align ourselves with the market we are serving.
How much experience does TRM Microwave have with passive products?Since 1970, TRM has been a leader in the design and manufacturing of passive and active RF- microwave devices for commercial, space and military applications. We offer a wide range of customizable passive control components as well as integrated assemblies and subsystems solutions.
Are you ISO certified?TRM Microwave is certified by Intertek Testing Services NA Inc. to the new ISO 9001:2008 standard for the design, manufacture, marketing, and sale of standard and custom passive and active RF- microwave devices.
Does TRM manufacture the products it designs?Yes. Our in-house circuit board fabrication and machining facilities allow the fastest turnaround possible for engineering models, prototype designs and standard catalog orders. From power dividers and couplers ranging from DC to 40GHz, to one-off custom frequency hybrids, TRM has the track record to fulfill your needs fast.
What construction technologies does TRM utilize?Our expertise includes designing in stripline, microstrip, ferrite and suspended stripline. We will optimize utilizing single layer or multilayer boards. To meet customer requirements, it is not unusual to mix construction methods in an integrated unit.
Does TRM make custom parts?Yes. Our success comes from our ability to adapt to our customers needs, with nearly 80% of our orders being custom solutions. TRM’s strength is partnering with our customers to develop custom solutions to solve unique problems for almost every conceivable configuration.
From Multiple Input LO Distribution Modules, Compensation Injection Modules, Monopulse Comparators, Multi Power Divider to Directional Coupler Packaging our innovative power combining schemes, reduce the amount of heat generated over traditional designs. TRM’s design approach integrates creative mechanical packaging with state of the art electrical designs resulting in a high performance, mechanically robust solutions.
Will you design and manufacture small quantities?Many requirements in our marketplace are low volume / high mix. Our processes have been designed to be as efficient as possible in very low volumes and our orders range from 1 to hundreds of any given part number.
What frequency range do you design in?From DC to 40 GHz, however the majority of our products are centered around 12GHz.
Do you provide integrated solutions?Yes. Often times the best solution for electrical and mechanical requirements is to design an integrated unit, versus a number of components. Reducing the number of input and output launches can have a significant effect on performance, cost effectiveness and turnaround time.
