CustomRF was founded in 2003 when Philips Semiconductor closed its RF design center in Maynard, MA. This presented an opportunity for Heinz Bachmann, Mark D'Amato and Harry Woodell, former employees, to acquire Philips' assets in Maynard, including a test lab, simulation tools, and a suite in Clocktower Place. In other words, everything needed by an engineering company offering electronic design, development and test services, systems as well as circuits, analog as well as digital.

In 2004 Mark and Harry left CustomRF, and Heinz carried on, for a while as a side business, but now again as a full-time occupation. Today CustomRF owns the simulation tools and a very rudimentary lab, and through partnership arrangements has access to test equipment as needed.
