Testing Expertise


For more than 40 years, Micross has been involved in the design and testing of ASIC solutions for some of the most demanding aerospace, defense, space and industrial applications. We've been the supplier of choice for major satellite and missile systems, providing ASIC test and qualification services as well as complex packaging solutions. Whether the need is for commercial-grade, RAD-hard or hi-reliability ASICs, Micross possesses the experience and in-house engineering expertise to meet and exceed the most stringent MIL-SPEC requirements while managing the entire process from start to finish.

After a design is entered in our system (either as schematics, netlists or Verilog VHDL), our engineers perform extensive pre- and post-layout simulation and analysis. We keep our customers involved in each stage of development.

In addition to developing new designs, our ASIC capability is another tool we can offer for managing post-obsolescence device continuity. When other options aren't viable, we can recreate the part that is no longer available on the marketplace, saving you the costly step of board level redesign.

  • Four decades providing custom ASIC solutions for defense, aerospace and industrial applications
  • Experience in RAD-hard and hi-reliability testing
  • Smooth transition from simulation to actual results correlation


Micross has long been considered to be a trusted, reliable provider of FPGA testing services for the defense and aerospace markets. Our history of working to the most stringent standards make Micross the perfect FPGA test provider for a wide range of applications. No matter how complex the device, our in-house testing experts can develop a comprehensive test program to ensure the most accurate assessment of FPGA reliability. Micross can quickly process even large orders using our high-speed, ultra-high-power automatic testing equipment (ATE), which can accommodate features sizes as low as 28nm.

RF Testing

Radio frequency (RF) today has become the underlying technology for a wide range of aerospace, defense, consumer, industrial and medical products.  Decades of meeting the demanding needs of defense and aerospace customers have given Micross the technical expertise and intelligent processes to deliver reliable, high-volume RF testing for any market. Whether your product is a 2 GHz electrosurgery instrument, a 10 GHz satellite transmitter, or a 60 GHz small cell backhaul transceiver, Micross will get the job done on time, to your specifications and budget. Compared to traditional rack-and-stack approaches, Micross delivers higher throughput, greater efficiency, less device damage, and excellent repeatability. That’s why more and more customers – defense/aerospace and industrial – count on Micross for their most stringent RF testing needs.
