M/A-COM Technology Solutions Press Release - November 8, 2010

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Introduces 50 MHz - 20 GHz HMIC™
Broadband Diode Switches in Surmount™ Packages - Broadband Switches Offer Low Insertion Loss, High Isolation

M/A-COM Technology Solutions

Heterolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (HMIC) broadband diode switchesLowell, MA, November 8, 2010 – M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech) introduced today a family of v that use RoHS compliant Surmount™ packages. These rugged, monolithic switches operate up to 26 GHz, provide low insertion loss and high isolation, and deliver up to +38 dBm CW power handling. The Surmount package technology provides a Surface Mount chipscale configuration that is optimized for broadband performance with minimal associated parasitics, which are usually related to hybrid MMIC designs incorporating beam lead and PIN diodes that require chip and wire assembly. These broadband switches are ideally suited for military and test equipment applications. The table below outlines specific part number performance:

“This product family of broadband diode switches is fabricated using M/A-COM Tech’s patented HMIC process that produces low loss and high isolation performance through low millimeter wave frequencies,” says Tim Daly, Product Manager, M/A-COM Technology Solutions. “We combine this innovative process with Surmount diode technology, which eliminates all bond wire parasitics and enables broadband capability in a surface mount configuration.”

Engineering samples and production devices are available today from stock and are offered in tape and reel or gel packs. Technical support is also available from M/A-COM Tech’s applications engineers at 978.656.2539. The datasheets and additional product information can be obtained from the M/A-COM Tech website at www.macomtech.com.
