Acquisition expands Molex’s capabilities for the consumer electronics market
Molex, a US-based manufacturer of electronic, electrical and fiber optic interconnection systems, has purchased the equipment assets of the Motorola antenna/EMC measurement lab in Aalborg, Denmark.
According to Molex, the lab has antenna and EMC measurement equipment, including anechoic chambers, an EMC chamber and a SAR system. Molex will utilize the lab for RF research projects to further advance Molex antenna technologies for wireless applications.
Separately, Molex will hire engineers and technicians to operate the chambers and test equipment, which will increase Molex’s research efforts. Additionally, the EMC testing capability reinforces Molex’s role as an antenna supplier.
The facility supports the continued global expansion of its antenna business, which designs, develops and manufactures custom antennas and antenna assemblies for wireless applications, said Molex.
Ellen Maassen, antenna business unit director at Molex, said: The Motorola antenna/EMC measurement lab is an extension of the product and service offerings we deliver to consumer electronics customers every day – particularly as wireless technologies become a standard in many consumer and business applications. This purchase enhances our antenna technology efforts and confirms our commitment to invest in technologies to support our customers.
