Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CIT) acquired MicroConnex Corporation, a privately held manufacturer of highly engineered microminiature flex circuits for the medical and test and measurement markets, which will now operate under Carlisle Medical Technologies (CMT), CIT’s Medical Technologies Business Unit. MicroConnex brings deep technical expertise and process capabilities for developing custom precision flex circuits and hybrid electronics for medical catheters, ultrasound transducers, semiconductor tests, and other applications with stringent tolerance, space, and weight requirements, and its highly specialized manufacturing processes include thin-film sputtering, laser ablation, and precision laser micromachining. This latest acquisition further builds on CIT’s recent acquisition of redgroup, a company that specializes in the design and development of complex catheter technologies. Both acquisitions broaden Carlisle IT’s expertise and the value the company delivers to OEM customers.
