C-MAC MicroTechnology wins Russian order

C-MAC MicroTechnology, manufacturers of microelectronic systems and components for harsh environments, has won its first order to supply commercial satellite technology to the Russian market.

The Gt Yarmouth-based company justified its decision to develop a relationship with a leading Russian distributor with its first piece of Russian business.

C-MAC will provide its Russian customer with a range of power conditioning components and modules, including point-of-load DC to DC converters for the next generation of communication and earth observation satellites.
The devices were understood to be selected for their performance, durability and reliability in the extreme temperature and radiation environments of space.

The order of unknown value follows sales meetings with seven of Russia’s leading telecommunications companies in Moscow and St Petersburg. The company expects to receive more opportunities in Russia, number two in the global satellite communications industry.

Chris Andrews of C-MAC said: “We are delighted to have won this significant order after our first visit to Russia and anticipate more will follow. We have a several to follow up this year and are looking forward to exploring these further.”

“Russia is one of several commercial satellite communications markets, outside the USA where we are focussing our attention and that are now opening up for us,” he added.

The visit was organised by C-MAC’s Russian distributor Petersburg Electronics Company.

The company is planning its next trip to Russia to explore the military aerospace market and to participate in commercial aerospace exhibitions.

In 2011 C-MAC’s ex-chief executive, Indro Mukurjee, moved to Plastic Logic in Cambridge, while the microelectronics specialists hired Karen Oddey as chief executive of the Aerospace and Defence Electronics division.
