MACOM launches wideband, high-dynamic-range frequency doubler

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes semiconductors, components and subassemblies for analog, RF, microwave and millimeter-wave applications) has launched a wideband frequency doubler for point-to-point radios and cellular backhaul applications.

The MAFC-004403 is a frequency doubler for those needing a multiplier with excellent input and output return loss and isolation. Operating over the 16-24GHz bandwidth, the device is packaged in a 4mm x 4mm QFN that is RoHS compliant and compatible with reflow temperatures to 260°C. Unlike the competition, it is claimed, the frequency doubler exhibits input power level ranges from -5dBm to +5dBm, delivering typical output power of 17dBm. Input and output return losses are both 12dB. The device also demonstrates high 1xFIN and 3xFIN isolations (of -25dBm and -15dBm, respectively). Supply current (ID) is 130mA.

“The doubler provides microwave radio designers with a solution for generating the required LO frequencies aimed at the 18-42GHz bands,” says product line director David Richardson. “When combined with the chipsets and VCOs that MACOM already offers for these bands, it provides a complete high-performance solution.”

Production quantities and samples of MAFC-004403 are available from stock.
