electronics-motherboard-microchip_EBizCommunications & Power Industries has landed a potential $13 million contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency for the first phase of a program to invest in the development of new approaches to make vacuum electronics.

CPI said Tuesday its Microwave Power Products division has secured an initial $5.8 million investment to support the DARPA Microsystems Technology Office’s High Power Amplifier Using Vacuum Electronics for Overmatch Capability program that seeks to create a new vacuum electron device.

“CPI welcomes this opportunity to work with DARPA to continue the push for higher power and wider bandwidth VED capabilities that will help usher in a new era of millimeter wave technology,” said Bob Fickett, president of CPI and Microwave Power Products Division.

The company and DARPA expect the VED technology to help address tradeoffs between output power and bandwidth to demonstrate a high output for both factors and meet compatibility targets for integration with mobile and airborne platforms.
