About L-3 Electron Devices
- The Electron Devices Division has designed and manufactured microwave vacuum devices for over 50 years. Our ISO9001:2000 certified facilities in San Carlos, CA and Williamsport, PA produce hundreds of microwave tubes, amplifiers and other vacuum devices for use in a variety of Military and Commercial systems. Our Military product lines meet and exceed the stringent requirements for operation and durability in today’s advanced Radar, EW, Missile and Communication systems. Electron Devices also provides Commercial devices for TV Broadcasting, Medical applications, Satellite Communications, and High Energy Plasma research.
Among the latest developments is the Electron Devices Microwave Power Module (MPM), a supercomponent combining a solid state driver with vacuum power booster (VPB) and integrated power conditioner (IPC) in one package that is much smaller, lighter and more efficient than the traditional TWTA. The VPB and IPC are manufactured at our San Carlos facility, providing the user with standard or custom designs at one location.
