ASB Inc. located at Daejon, South Korea, operates an MMIC circuit and RF module design center and in-house test facility. Clean room production line for MMIC/RF module test & assembly is equipped with fully automated or semi-automated machines and test equipments. Test capability covers up to 50 GHz for on-wafer measurement and microwave range for packaged MMIC & module testing. The MMIC products are highly linear LNAs, gain blocks, and power amplifiers with low DC power consumption for use in up to 6 GHz application. The RF modules are internally matched SMD-type LNAs, power amplifiers, and PLL synthesizers. The performance of the modules is optimized for customization.
The enthusiastic R&D results in continuous release of new quality products and strengthens the product portfolio, so that Korean government keeps designating the company as a World-class Product Company with Excellent Korean Technology. The company also cooperates with the Sales Representitives covering the important territories of the world in order to provide the shortest and stable delivery. All our members strive to provide cost-effective and state-of-the-art solutions to customers in a timely manner while consistently meeting or exceeding their quality, reliability, and service expectations. The company has been ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001:2004 certified by Korea International Standards Certification (KIC) since September 2004 and October 2005.
ASB’s Green Product – All our products comply with the EU RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC and especially MMICs are all halogen-free.
ASB Inc. has an R&D design center for MMIC circuit and RF module simulation. The circuit simulation and layout software includes commercially available ADS, Cadence, etc. on PC-based environment. By using self-contained design capability we develop the MMICs, the SMD-type RF modules, and microwave sub-modules up to 30 GHz aiming at the commercial markets such as DTV, DVB/DMB, CDMA, GSM, WCDMA, GPS, WLAN, CATV, WiBro/WiMAX and so on.
The company owns about 100 patents, related to a world-level proven heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT) technology and MMIC design, and also has circuit design engineers with 5~20 years experience. The company is mainly using SiGe HBT and BiCMOS, InGaP HBT, and InGaAs Enhanced-mode pHEMT technologies and will expand into analog & mixed-signal IC to challenge a fast growing IT market.
