MPD Fully Functioning During the Covid-19 Emergency

We just thought we’d let all of you know that it is business as usual at Octagon Communications and MPD. All necessary precautions have been taken, and, as several of our staffers already work remotely, the office is open for business until we are told otherwise.

The August issue of MPD will arrive on schedule, and of course our website and the digital edition will continue to be available.

Feel free to contact any of us with questions or concerns!

We hope that you and your families are safe and healthy.

About Us

For 30 years, Microwave Product Digest magazine has been the most comprehensive source of new product information for RF and microwave design engineers and engineering managers in the diverse array of markets and applications in which RF and microwave technology is used. In addition to product information, MPD provides technical articles, news, and application information of interest to our readers. It is a unique tool delivered in a tabloid format that makes reading articles and browsing products and advertisements a very pleasant experience.

MPD also publishes many supplements every year, each dedicated to a specific type of product, and publishes Military Microwave Digest, a comprehensive, staff-written supplement that covers RF and microwave technologies applicable to defense systems, as well as market and DoD program information. All of these print publications are available in either PDF or “e-zine” formats on this Web site after publication.

This Web site is one of the very few in the industry that provides access to thousands of products that have been introduced within the pages of MPD, as well as articles and advertisements. It also provides up-to-date information about industry news and events, white papers, and special events in which viewers can participate.
