MACOM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high-performance analog RF, microwave, millimeterwave and photonic semiconductor products and components, today introduced two wideband amplifiers, the MAAM-011229, a Low Noise Amplifier, and the MAAM-011206, a Darlington amplifier, to its growing portfolio of high-performance MMICs.

“We are pleased to announce the first of many high-performance MMIC families with these current adjustable, fully matched surface mount devices”

For over 60 years, MACOM’s design and applications experts have spearheaded innovation in the RF, microwave and millimeterwave domain. Proven engineering and technical support teams are continuing in this legacy with a next generation of wide band MMIC solutions designed for the most demanding customer applications.

The new MAAM-011206 is a versatile, Broadband Darlington Amplifier operating from DC to 15 GHz. This device outperforms competitive parts with superior frequency range, higher gain of 14 dB, improved return loss of >15 dB and higher output power drive of 20 dBm P1dB. Housed in a small, 1.5 x 1.2 mm plastic SMT package, the MAAM-011206 is compatible with standard pick and place assembly equipment. Functional operation is achieved with single bias from +3 V to +5 V and has the option for current adjustment with an external bias resistor. Boasting industry leading specs such as Gain and return loss, this amplifier enables real estate constrained customers a superior solution with greater versatility for Test and Measurement, Land Mobile Radios and Wireless and Satellite Communications.

The new MAAM-011229 is a 3-5V Broadband Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) covering the frequency of 0.05 to 4 GHz. This 50Ω LNA provides flat gain and excellent return losses to 3.25 GHz and out to 4 GHz with a 1.2 dB roll off while keeping Noise Figure below 2 dB. Simple matching and bias circuit, along with active bias enables the 2mm 8 lead MAAM-011229 to be an excellent, multi-market amplifier for customers.

“We are pleased to announce the first of many high-performance MMIC families with these current adjustable, fully matched surface mount devices,” Graham Board, Senior Director, RF and Microwave, at MACOM. “These two devices are just a fraction of MACOM’s expanding product portfolio that ranges from DC-100GHz. We’re committed to enabling our customers’ applications and helping them solve their most challenging design needs.”

Samples of the MAAM-011206 and MAAM-011229 are now available. Additional product information can be obtained from the MACOM website at:
