Patented HMIC process results in low loss and high performance with exceptional repeatability
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a new integrated bias network from M/A-COM Technology Solutions.
The MABT-011000 is a rugged, fully monolithic, broadband, surface mount bias network that utilizes MACOM’s patented HMIC process. This process allows the formation of silicon vias by imbedding them in low loss, low dispersion glass along with high-Q spiral inductors and metal-insulator-metal (MIM) capacitors. The close proximity of elements and the combination of silicon and glass give this HMIC device low loss and high performance with exceptional repeatability through millimeter frequencies.
The MABT-011000 bias network is ideally suited for the DC biasing of PIN diode control circuits. It functions as an RF-DC decoupling network, as well as the DC return, and contains a series DC blocking capacitor with DC currents up to 60 mA and DC voltages up to 50 V.
According to MACOM, additional key features of the MABT-011000 include:
- Specified over broad bandwidth: 2–18 GHz
- Low insertion loss: < 0.3 dB
- High RF-DC isolation: > 34 dB
