Microwave Product Digest is the premier new product magazine devoted to information on components, equipment and subsystems for the RF, microwave and wireless industries. Each issue provides news, data and applications information that engineers and engineering managers working in commercial or military markets can use to develop their products.

Microwave Product Digest made its debut in 1989, bringing “a trade show in print” to our readers every month. Through the past two decades, we’ve become a respected source of the latest product introductions, along with solid feature articles.

Our easy-to-navigate website provides new product information, industry news, opinion pieces, and in-depth articles. Each issue is posted monthly, with products and articles archived, creating a virtual encyclopedia of pertinent data. Our Supplements, another source of information, are added to the site as they are published, and are archived as well.

MPD is a BPA audited publication. Approximately 32,000 engineers tasked with design, test and applications of RF and microwave systems and subsystems read MPD in print every month. Internationally, an additional 4,500 engineers receive MPD in digital format. Our targeted engineering community is primarily involved in wireless, defense electronics, and other high frequency projects, both in the commercial and military markets.

MPD’s tabloid-size format is simply the best for impact advertising. Your ad, when run as a full tabloid-size page, is 40% larger than a standard-size ad. Other advantages of this format is the option of wrapping your products around a standard-size version of your ad for even greater effect – and each product is assigned a reader information number that provides readers with an easy path to an advertiser’s website.

MPD’s e-mail blasts reach more than 48,000 fully-opted-in subscribers in private industry, defense, and other organizations throughout the world. We have excellent open rates and click-throughs to advertiser web pages. Advertisers receive a complete audit of results including total e-mails sent, open rate, unique visitors, and click-throughs per link. MPD can offer guidance to first-time advertisers in selecting optimum content and presentation.

Uncertain Times for DefenseIn Defense of DARPA; Lamenting Bell Labs
By Barry Manz

A federal agency like DARPA is a sitting duck for politicians and assorted other critics. It has come up with some truly bizarre programs over years that ultimately either delivered no tangible results, were canceled before they could cause any damage, or attempted to answer questions that nobody was asking or needed answers to.
