X-Microwave delivers a complete ecosystem of modular RF and microwave drop-in components, as well as a full suite of test and prototyping accessories. The initial offering of GRF-specific X-MWblocks include RF low noise amplifiers (LNAs), gain blocks, drivers, amplifiers with bypass, mixers and power detectors. The intent is to add more products to the X-MWblock portfolio as they are released by GRF. Guerrilla RF’s utilization of a common product footprint will help accelerate this modular portfolio expansion.

"With catalog components representing a significant portion of Guerrilla’s business, it became increasingly obvious we needed a ‘force multiplier’ in assisting customers with their designs. X-Microwave’s modular approach is a great fit since it mirrors our own strategy of providing core blocks that can be easily swapped in and out of designs as part of the optimization process," said Ryan Pratt, founder and CEO of Guerrilla RF. "Now that our cores are part of the X-Microwave ecosystem, customers can easily piece together our solutions into full lineups in hours vs. weeks. This agile approach to system design is game changing for our customers; concepts can be optimized and proven out with real hardware at a fraction of the time it would normally take for traditional system designs."

"GRF’s strong portfolio of amplifiers, mixers, power detectors and switches includes ideal building blocks for X-Microwave’s prototyping and production system," said John Richardson, founder and GM of X-Microwave. "Virtually all of the targeted cores utilize a common footprint, making it exceptionally easy to proliferate our offering of customizable X-MWblocks. Guerrilla RF components are renowned for their excellent noise and linearity characteristics, making them ideal for systems requiring the very best RF/microwave performance."
