Giga-tronics Incorporated (NASDAQ: GIGA) was founded in 1980. The company's first product, a 50 MHz to 26.5 GHz microwave signal generator, became the standard maintenance and calibration tool of the U.S. Navy for shipboard electronic warfare (EW) equipment. Throughout the decade of the 80s, Giga-tronics expanded its product offering of microwave frequency synthesizers to support radar, satellite communications and EW test applications.
As Giga-tronics entered the 90s, it began to address the test needs of the fast growing telecommunications market, while continuing to serve its established markets. In addition to designing and producing new products, Giga-tronics acquired and integrated power measurement instrument and RF signal generator lines into its product offering. The company quickly became a leader in the fast, accurate power measurement of modulated wireless communications signals. As the decade progressed, Giga-tronics expanded its acquisition strategy to include subsidiary businesses.
Today, Giga-tronics Incorporated consists of five, separate operating companies with technical expertise in test, measurement and control at the component, instrument, sub-system and system levels.
