M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high performance RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products, announced the industry’s first integrated core chip for the 8 to 11 GHz frequency range. Containing 6-bits of phase control, 6-bits of attenuation control and 26 dB of gain, MACOM’s core chip is an easy to use serial/parallel interface in a surface mount QFN package.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LTC3255, a versatile high voltage step-down switched capacitor converter that delivers up to 50 mA of output current. In applications where the input voltage exceeds twice the output voltage, a charge pump offers nearly twice the efficiency of an equivalent linear regulator, and provides a space-saving inductor-free alternative to switching DC/DC regulators.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high performance RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products, announced the newest addition to its portfolio of modulator drivers for 100 G applications. The MAOM-003404 is a quad channel 32 Gbps differential modulator driver IC for 100 G coherent transponders in CFP and CFP2 form factors.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high performance RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products, today announced the newest entry in its portfolio of GaN in Plastic packaged power products. Optimized for L-Band commercial air traffic control, military radar, and long range perimeter monitoring applications at 1.2 to 1.4 GHz, MACOM’s new 2-stage, fully matched GaN in Plastic power module scales to peak pulse power levels of 100W in a 14 x 24 mm package size – delivering twice the power of comparably sized competing products.
Richardson RFPD, Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for two new RF single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) switches from Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation (Peregrine). The PE42520 and PE42521 are pin-compatible upgraded versions of the PE42552, with higher power handling, fast settling time and switching time, and high isolation. Both devices are offered in 3 x 3 mm QFN packages.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LTM4676, a dual 13A or single 26A µModule® (micromodule) step-down DC/DC regulator with a serial digital interface. The interface enables system designers and remote operators to command and supervise a system’s power condition and consumption. The LTM4676 simplifies system characterization, optimization and data mining during prototyping, deployment and field operation.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high-performance RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, announced a new ceramic GaN on SiC HEMT Power Transistor for avionics applications. The MAGX-001090-600L00 is a gold-metalized, matched GaN on Silicon Carbide, RF power transistor optimized for pulsed avionics applications, such as secondary surveillance radar in air traffic control systems.
