Custom MMIC To Show Latest Products At EuMW

New DC-18 GHz switches and MMIC amplifiers to 36 GHz on display in London 3rd to 7th October

Custom MMIC will be showing its latest MMIC switches and amplifiers at European Microwave Week (EuMW) in London this October from the 3rd-7th with UK representative, Aspen Electronics.

Products include two new GaAs MMIC switches -  the non-reflective CMD234C4 and CMD235C4 - for high military and instrumentation applications. 

The CMD234C4 is a DC-18 GHz broadband MMIC SP3T switch featuring a low insertion loss of 2.4 dB and a high isolation of 40dB at 10 GHz. The CMD235C4 is a DC-18 GHz broadband MMIC SP5T switch offering broadband performance with an insertion loss of 2.5dB and high port-to-port isolation of 40dB at 10 GHz. Both switches provide a switching speed of 66ns and an input P1dB of 21 dBm. 

It will also be showing two ultra wideband performance distributed GaAs MMIC amplifiers; the DC to 22 GHz CMD240 and 2 to 22GHz CMD241.

The CMD240 has a noise figure down to 2.2 dB and a gain of 15 dB. The CMD240 demonstrates a 1 dB compression point of 19 dBm at 10 GHz and an output IP3 of 28 dBm with 80 mA supply current. With slightly less current draw and a gain of 13.5 dB from 2 to 22 GHz, the CMD241 has a noise figure of 2.3 dB. The CMD241 features enhanced output power performance with an output P1dB of 21 dBm.

Both the CMD240 and CMD241 are matched to 50 ohms, and the CMD241 includes on-chip DC block capacitors.

Also at the show will be a 26-35 GHz balanced driver amplifier, the CMD243, which offers 15.5 dB of gain. The CMD243 also provides an output P1dB of 21 dBm, a low noise figure of 4.4 dB and is 50 ohm matched. The CMD243 is suitable for communications, military, and space applications.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
