History

Engineering is our legacy. It is who we are. FEI-Elcom Tech formerly Elcom Technologies was founded in 1995 as a design and manufacturing company specializing in various DRO’s (Dielectric Resonance Oscillators) based RF frequency sources. Elcom experienced early success as a result of unprecedented performance in design and manufacturing. Our early core competencies include:

  • Low phase noise
  • Fast switching speed
  • Low microphonics
  • Wide operating frequency (in-band and wideband)
  • Low jitter, less than 0.1 psec in fiber optic applications
  • Zero phase hits proprietary technology for digital radio applications

Through outside investors, Elcom continued to expand and produced its first fully-integrated ATE broadband synthesizer, the UFS-18. This was followed by the IBS family and later IBS VME family of synthesizers aimed at the antennae test market. Customers worldwide began to recognize the Elcom low phase noise and switching speed technology as a competitive advantage. In 2007, through a series of collaborative design relationships with multiple customers, the company began an effort to bring new DSP enabled technologies to the SIGINT and SATCOM markets through their FlxGen™ product line.

In 2007 Elcom entered a strategic partnership with Frequency Electronics, Inc. (FEI) a Long Island, New York-based company specializing in global space-based time standards. This strategic partnership allows the companies to pursue larger programs where the capabilities of both companies are critical for best performance and affordability. In addition, both companies can penetrate systems that require low phase noise, excellent short-term stability, fast switching speed, low g-sensitivity, small size and low power for airborne and other severe mobile environments.

In 2012 Elcom Technologies was acquired by Frequency Electronics, INC (FEI) and is currently a wholly-owned subsidiary of FEI. FEI-Elcom Tech has a global customer base including industry leaders in both the aerospace defense and commercial markets. Besides providing solutions to defense departments and defense ministries around the democratic world, FEI-Elcom has enjoyed continued growth in its customer base including BAE, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Agilent Technologies, L3 Communications, General Dynamics, NAVAIR, Rockwell Collins, Raytheon, and Comtech EF Data.

Mission

Elcom designs and delivers Advanced Integrated Multifunction Microwave Assemblies, operating at frequencies up to 67 GHz (HF, 6 GHz, 0.5 -18-26.5-40-67 GHz).

We provide fast switching speed, low phase noise (jitter), and ultra-wideband solutions for Electronic Warfare, Radar, Electromagnetic Environment Simulator, SIGINT, and emerging 5G wireless applications. Our design approach is based on a combination of MW circuit design and FPGA based proprietary DSP.

Elcom products include T/R modules, Up / Down Converters, Receivers, Synthesized Signal Generators, Block Converters, Switchable Filter Banks, and Phase Locked DROs.

We offer COTS and custom products in VPX and VME open system based on the DOD Modular System Approach (MOSA). Also, we offer stand-alone ruggedized and hermetically sealed modules.

In our NJ location, we focus on R&D, prototyping, low rate production, and full-rate production is outsourced to benchmark subcontractors.
