Reading time ( words)

TT Electronics, a global provider of engineered electronics for performance critical applications, announces it has officially completed the acquisition of Torotel, a US-based designer and manufacturer of high-reliability power and electromagnetic assemblies and components for the aerospace and defense markets. The acquisition increases TT’s capability in the design and development of power management devices and marks the latest addition to the company’s extensive global magnetics portfolio.

The acquisition of the Torotel business broadens TT’s power electronics capabilities and further expands the company’s presence in the US aerospace and defense market building on the recently acquired Covina, California-based business unit from Excelitas Technologies earlier in the year. Torotel extends TT’s list of blue-chip US aerospace and defense customers and provides access to growth programs with sole-sourced positions on major platforms. TT continues to be committed to investment that supports the acceleration of its growth prospects and increases the breadth and differentiation of its engineering capability.

Richard Tyson, CEO, TT Electronics said:
“We are delighted to complete the acquisition of Torotel. It represents a fantastic fit within our existing US power electronics business, strengthens our position in critical defense applications and further develops our global electromagnetics design and manufacturing capability. We’re delighted to be able to welcome the Torotel team into the TT group.”

Michael Leahan, EVP, TT Electronics Power Solutions said:
“Torotel is a great fit for TT supporting our strategy to build leading positions in high-performance, high-reliability markets such as aerospace and defense where the proliferation of electronics is driving increased demand for our custom power management and conversion systems. Torotel represents an exciting addition to TT Electronics and our global electromagnetics capability.  We are thrilled to welcome the Torotel employees and customers to TT where we remain committed to providing the best service, products and value available.”

There is plenty of evidence that the American PCB industry is going through a revitalization. While a few new companies are being established, others are being rejuvenated as investors gain more interest and confidence in domestic PCB companies. I reached out to Prashant Patel, owner and president of Alpha Circuit I LLC in the greater Chicago area. I wanted to hear about his investment and the unique path he took to owning a PCB shop.

James Webb Space Telescope en Route to Discover Origins of the Universe, Study Exoplanets

01/06/2022 | Thales
A joint program between NASA and its counterparts in Europe (ESA) and Canada (CSA), Webb will observe the beginnings of our Universe by reaching back in time to just a few hundred million years after the Big Bang. It will also observe exoplanets – planets outside the Solar System – that are comparable to our own, as well as the formation and evolution of stars and galaxies. The ultimate aim of this successor to the iconic Hubble space telescope is to discover galaxies that reach back to the relative beginnings of the Universe. This state-of-the-art time machine is expected to revolutionize all aspects of modern astronomy. It will unveil the hidden side of the Universe, namely stars enveloped in clouds of dust, molecules in the atmosphere of other worlds, and the light issuing from the first stars and galaxies.

DoD Faces Growing Risks from Reliance on Lead in Electronics

12/13/2021 | Chris Peters, USPAE
Like a cancer that spreads untreated until it becomes an urgent problem, the U.S. defense community is facing a small but growing problem that is increasingly undermining U.S. military readiness and technological dominance. The problem is lead—specifically, the lead-alloy solders that traditionally have been used to attach electronic components to printed circuit boards (PCBs). Over the last 15 years, the commercial electronics industry has shifted to lead-free solders, prompted by environmental health regulations in Europe and elsewhere. However, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and its contractors never made the switch and are still heavily reliant on leaded solders. Now, leaded electronics are becoming harder to find and more outdated.
