About Us

Expert RF Personnel + Cost-Effective Design Methodology = Innovation

RFE is a small company big on innovation.

We are an Original Design Manufacturer (ODM) of custom high performance miniaturized microwave sources.  Our products make everything from long-range communications to self-driving cars possible.  An RFE product will function as designed, every time, in every environment placed (including underwater!).

The Partner of Choice:  Our seasoned team of technical experts has more than 30 years of product development expertise.  RFE has provided both commercial and defense industries with critical microwave componentry (frequency synthesizers, converters, radar systems, voltage controlled oscillators, etc.) since 1991.

Design & Manufacture of Microwave/Millimeter-Wave Systems:  RFE maintains a full manufacturing & testing facility for RF/MW custom projects located in California’s Silicon Valley.  Rapid development, small projects, legacy product support?  No problem.

Our History: 30 Years of RF/MW Design & Manufacturing Operations

RFE, Inc. began as Spinnaker Microwave in 1991, and reorganized under the RFE name resulting from a 2014 acquisition.  The new business brought together all of the existing products, design IP, capital equipment, inventory, infrastructure, and personnel.  We immediately resumed supporting our long term customers’ existing programs.

In the years since, RFE has demonstrated being an agile, flexible manufacturer with a deep IP portfolio.  Our customers include DoD contractors, as well as industrial and commercial OEMs.  Among them are:  Anaren Microwave, BAE Systems, dSPACE GmbH, L3Harris, Radiometrics, Raytheon, Sierra Nevada and Textron Systems.
