Ultra Electronics

Ultra Electronics designs, develops and manufactures high performance integrated microwave assemblies (IMA’s) and components.

Ultra Electronics three product groups supply connectorized microwave integrated circuit IMA’s, waveguide receiver protector products and hybrid microelectronic devices. Ultra Electronics specializes in broadband design (up to 0.5-26.5GHz) and high power devices (up to 1.2MW peak, 100kW CW) and manufactures hermetically sealed, military screened products.

A key differentiator for Ultra Electronics is the capability to provide a sophisticated level of control over RF/Microwave circuitry. Examples include custom drivers, programmable temperature compensation networks, read/write Internal memories and BIT detection. These are used for signal verification and provide optimum RF performance across temperature.

Ultra Electronics is a critical supplier to the U.S. Government, large defense prime contractors and international customers.


World class manufacturing technology is another clear differentiator for Ultra Electronics. Production and assembly operations are housed in Class 100K clean rooms. Automated assembly is used for greater than 90% of their MIC products. Automated test software is written and used on all multi-year programs. The increased reliability and repeatability from automated assembly, coupled with the development of low tune designs, translates into enhanced throughput and reduced rework and serves to drive cost out of the operation.

Ultra Electronics is committed to maintaining the highest quality standards and its Woburn, MA location is certified to ISO 9001 as well as AS 9100C. Additionally, performance metrics are tracked and displayed with pride throughout the facility, fostering ownership and a commitment to continuous improvement among all employees.
