M/A-COM Tech showcasing new products for networks, aerospace & defense and multi-market applications

In booth 422 at this week’s European Microwave Week (EuroMW2011) in Manchester, UK (11-13 October), M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes analog semiconductors, components, and subassemblies for RF, microwave and millimeter-wave applications), showcased a broad portfolio of new products for networks, aerospace & defense, and multi-market applications.

These include:

- a complete chipset solution for 42GHz point-to-point radio applications (a systems-driven approach to integrating innovative IC and package design capabilities, resulting in faster time to market with optimal performance);

  • best-in-class optical modulator drivers and TIAs for 40/100G fiber networks;
  • RF amplifiers for node, fiber-to-the home (FTTH) and RF-over-glass infrastructure applications;
  • new phase shifter family with integrated CMOS driver (featuring low DC power consumption, minimal attenuation variation over phase-shift usage, 30 ohm impedance, in a 4mm PQFN package);
  • GaN on silicon carbide transistors and highly integrated pallet amplifiers (powered by a proprietary 0.5 micron HEMP design);
  • the next-generation multi-function phased array radar (MPAR) for the Federal Aviation Administration’s air-traffic and weather surveillance systems (recently named as one of R&D Magazines’ 2011 R&D 100 Winners);
  • a new family of power detectors that are low cost, yet provide accurate directive power and include full temperature compensation; and
  • the firm’s newest line of 1-18GHz low-noise amplifiers (LNAs), which are 66% smaller than traditional LNAs, and feature better noise figure (NF) and bandwidth, it is claimed, suiting meter readers or medical transponders.
