MACOM Introduces Industry Leading DC-50 GHz Wideband Amplifier

Featuring up to +23dBm of Saturated Power and 15 dB of Gain

LOWELL, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 24, 2015 — M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high-performance RF, microwave, millimeterwave and photonic products, today introduced the MAAM-011109-DIE, a wideband amplifier boasting an operating frequency range of DC-50 GHz. The MAAM-011109-DIE provides customers with 50 Ohms matching and typical return losses better than 15 dB. This user friendly amplifier is a high-performance, low noise solution for customers seeking a very wideband, fully matched amplifier solution.

Features of the MAAM-011109-DIE include gate bias adjust to change current setting for power or temperature, gain trim control that allows 15 dB of gain control (0 to -1 V) and a temperature-compensated power detector that provides a DC voltage in relation to the output power.

“The wideband performance of the MAAM-011109-DIE makes it an optimal solution for broadband applications such as Test and Measurement and Electronic Countermeasures,” said Paul Beasly, Product Manager, MACOM. “The DC-50 GHz operation, adjustable bias control for power and gain and low noise performance make the device a highly versatile solution for multiple wideband applications.”

This die product features gold-plated contact pads on its backside and a size of 1.97 x 1.30 x 0.1 mm.

The table below outlines typical performance for the MAAM-011109-DIE:
