ME Brief History
1975 Mikroelektronika (ME) started as a part of a large industrial complex - Rudi Cajavec, which produced military equipment. Rudi Cajavec was a leading company in the field of military electronics and produced 70% of total electronics in former Yugoslavia whose major export product was the military technology.
After developing and implementing thick and thin films’ technology, ME became responsible for producing state of the art electronics for radar systems, fighter airplanes’ technical equipment, armed vehicles, tanks etc.
Being a leader prior to 1990’s, ME exported its knowledge, technologies and products to Soviet Union.
1990/5 ExYugoslavia wars and starting of transition changed profiles of all local companies which made ME become commercially oriented company.
ME started producing Police radar systems and electronics for car industry, as well as medical equipment based on electronics and electromagnetic microwaves.
ME medical program was developed as a joint project with Belgrade Military Medical Academy and was fully successful implemented in various medical areas.
In the meantime, well experienced ME military engineers started a brand new research and development project related to products for electric energy measurement and its consumption management (the first generation of such EE meters was developed in 1994 as a pilot project within the whole Central Europe).
2001 ME received ISO 9001:2000 certificates and constantly keeps up to date with the best international standards and certificates.
2001 ME exported its systems’ production license to Sitel, Serbia (it finalizes and calibrates products for Serbian market in accordance to local laws and requirements).
