MACOM debuts 27 new DC-100GHz MMICs

In booth 207 at European Microwave Week (EuMW 2016) in London, UK (4–6 October), MACOM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes semiconductors, components and subassemblies for analog RF, microwave, millimeter-wave and photonic applications) is debuting 27 new MMIC products comprising what is claimed to be the industry's most extensive portfolio of DC-100GHz monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMICs) for test & measurement, SatCom, aerospace & defense, wired broadband, and industrial, scientific & medical (ISM) applications.

MACOM says that, leveraging foundry technologies and proprietary in-house processes, it has pioneered a new class of high-performance MMICs spanning product categories from amplifiers, frequency converters and control products to frequency sources and detectors, encompassing the entire block diagram from signal generation, amplification and conditioning to conversion and monitoring.

The new MMIC families comprise the following:

  • Gain block & low-noise amplifiers
    Two wideband amplifiers – fully matched and current-adjustable amplifier solutions for multi-market applications;
    Family of low-noise amplifiers – providing performance and versatility enabling accelerated time-to-market.
  • Wired broadband amplifiers
    Family of amplifiers – designed specifically for DOCSIS 3.1 CATV infrastructure applications requiring high gain, superior linearity and low noise figure.
  • Wideband power amplifiers
    High-power MMIC amplifiers – covering DC-22GHz for test & measurement, electronic warfare, and radar applications.
  • SatCom power amplifiers
    High-linearity family of power amplifiers for SatCom applications – features the highly integrated L-band device supporting longer battery life in SatCom applications.
  • Voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs)
    Octave-band family of voltage-controlled oscillators – suited to test & measurement, aerospace & defense, and communications systems.

"Continued consolidation in the semiconductor industry has disrupted the MMIC supplier ecosystem and left customers with fewer credible, reliable sources for high-performance MMICs," states Graham Board, senior director, Multi-Market Products, at MACOM. "MACOM is meeting this challenge head on by increasing our investment in advanced MMIC technologies and aggressively expanding our MMIC product portfolio," he adds. "As the only pure-play RF, microwave and millimeter-wave supplier with a proven heritage of semiconductor industry leadership – built over six-decades – MACOM is committed to being the trusted, long-term supplier of choice for the next generation of high-performance MMICs."

Samples of select new MMICs are available now.
