At IMS 2018: MACOM Introduces New Wideband Double-Balanced Mixers for High-Performance Test and Measurement, Microwave Radio and Radar Applications

13 June 2018

MACOM Technology Solutions Inc., a supplier of high-performance RF, microwave, millimeter-wave and photonic solutions, has announced a new portfolio of wideband double-balanced mixers, covering the 8-43 GHz and 18-46 GHz frequency ranges. Delivering low conversion loss, high linearity and a wide intermediate frequency (IF) bandwidth, the new MAMX Series mixers are ideally suited to meet the performance requirements for next-generation test and measurement (T&M), microwave radio and radar applications.

The double-balanced circuit configuration of the new MAMX Series mixers provides excellent port isolation, while internal 50-ohm matching simplifies the application. In addition, the class 1B (500-1000 V) electrostatic discharge (ESD) rating ensures high levels of ruggedness and reliability. Both devices — the MAMX-011036 and MAMX-011054 — are available in compact 3 mm, 12 lead QFN plastic packaging as well as bare die formats for flexible integration.

For over 60 years, MACOM’s design and applications experts have spearheaded innovation in the RF, microwave and millimeter-wave domain, developing the industry’s broadest portfolio of MMICs and components spanning the entire RF signal chain. Leveraging advanced, proprietary technologies, MACOM’s heterogeneous semiconductor and packaging strategy ensures that each individual RF system function is fully optimized to deliver maximum performance at the appropriate cost. MACOM remains firmly committed to delivering true competitive advantage to our customers, providing superior technology, expertise, cost structures and supply chains — with no compromises.
