Diamond Microwave relocates design and laboratory facility
Diamond Microwave Devices Ltd of Leeds, UK – which specializes in compact gallium nitride (GaN)-based microwave solid-state power amplifiers (SSPA) customized for high-reliability defence and communications applications – has relocated its design and laboratory facility to the historic Salts Mill in Saltaire, near Shipley, West Yorkshire, UK.
The firm’s ultra-compact amplifiers are said to achieve high pulsed and continuous wave (CW) power output levels, and offer a viable alternative to traveling-wave tube (TWT) amplifiers, with low cost of ownership.

“Our new location offers us attractive surroundings within a UNESCO World Heritage Site, much closer to good national rail links and only 20 minutes from Leeds Bradford International airport,” says managing director Richard Lang. “Saltaire and Shipley have excellent local facilities, and have a history of developing innovative electronics businesses.”
