M/A-COM Tech launches 42GHz transmit & receive chipset for point-to-point radio

In booth 815 at the 2012 IEEE/MTT-S International Microwave Symposium tradeshow in Montréal, Canada (19-21 June), M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes analog semiconductors, components and subassemblies for RF, microwave and millimeter-wave applications) has launched a 42GHz SMARTSET chipset for point-to-point radio applications.

Using a systems-driven approach to integration, coupled with innovative IC and package design capabilities, the chipset enables OEM customers to achieve faster time-to-market with optimal performance, claims the firm. Offered in a convenient surface-mount package, it facilitates the use of common high-volume assembly lines in manufacturing operations.

“The new 42GHz chipset offers a complete millimeter-wave transmit and receive solution for this emerging high-capacity radio band,” says David Richardson, PTP/Infrastructure market director.

The 42GHz SMARTSET chipset includes the following products:

  • MAUC-010515 upconverter (40.5-43.5GHz) in a 6mm x6mm laminate package;
  • MAAM-010513 driver amplifier (40.5-43.5GHz) in a 5mm x5mm laminate package;
  • MAAM-010512 power amplifier (40.5-43.5GHz) in a 7mm x7mm laminate package;
  • MADC-010736 downconverter (40.5-43.5GHz) in a 6mm x6mm laminate package;
  • MAFC-010511 frequency doubler (16.0-24.0GHz) in a 3mm x3mm QFN;
  • MAAT-010521 voltage variable amplifier (5.0-45.0GHz) in a 3mm x3mm QFN; and
  • MAOC-0092xx voltage controlled oscillator (5.7-14.2GHz) in a 5mm x5mm QFN.

Production quantities and samples of the chipset are available from stock.
