About Electronic Research Initiative

On June 1, 2017, the DARPA Microsystems Technology Office (MTO) announced a new Electronics Resurgence Initiative (ERI) to ensure far-reaching improvements in electronics performance well beyond the limits of traditional scaling. ERI draws on new and existing DARPA programs to make a significant investment into enabling circuit specialization and managing complexity. Building on the tradition of other successful government-industry partnerships, ERI aims to forge forward-looking collaborations among the commercial electronics community, defense industrial base, university researchers, and the Department of Defense to create a more specialized, secure, and heavily automated electronics industry that serves the needs of both defense as well as the domestic commercial sectors.

About Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency

For sixty years, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has held to a singular and enduring mission: to make pivotal investments in breakthrough technologies for national security. Working with innovators inside and outside of government, DARPA has repeatedly delivered on that mission, transforming revolutionary concepts and even seeming impossibilities into practical capabilities. The ultimate results have included not only game- changing military capabilities such as precision weapons and stealth technology, but also such icons of modern civilian society such as the Internet, automated voice recognition and language translation, and Global Positioning System receivers small enough to embed in myriad consumer devices.

Maja Systems at DesignCon 2019

San Jose, CA – January 29, 2019 – Maja Systems, as part of a successful collaboration with Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CarlisleIT), announces live demonstrations of millimeter-wave connectivity technology, for data-center, industrial, and automotive applications, using the SPL-100 surface-mount millimeter-wave antenna. 

CarlisleIT’s Signal Integrity team, working alongside the designers at Maja Systems, enjoyed the challenge of designing a high-performance interconnect both capable of supporting Maja’s vision for the SPL-100 antenna and ready for high volume production.
