Arralis Shows New 94GHz Devices At EuMW

MMIC power amplifier, image cancellation mixer, and variable attenuator designed for advanced systems

Arralis, a developer of high frequency chips, modules and antennas up to and beyond 110GHz,  is showing a number of new W-band MMICs at European Microwave Week, London this week. 

These include a power amplifier, image cancellation mixer, and variable attenuator which have been designed to meet advanced system requirements, according to the company.

 "We are delighted to participate in Microwave Week and again promote commercial 94GHz technology that exceeds expectations. We recently launched the worlds first W band up and downconverters and these have been a huge success for Arralis. We expect the same success with these new devices," said CTO, Mike Gleaves.

The power amplifier (TU-W1330305) is a four-stage MMIC that covers frequencies from 92GHz to 96GHz. The TU-W1330305 provides up to 20dB of flat, stable gain, and a power output of more than 18dBm from a 4V supply voltage and low current of 210mA.

The 92 to 96GHz TU-W1340310 image cancellation MMIC mixer is an I/Q MMIC diode mixer with integrated quadrature coupler for single sideband upconverter operation. TU-W1340310 is made using GaAs Shottky diode technology and is designed for output frequencies in the range from 92GHz to 96GHz using either fixed IF and varying LO (86GHz - 90GHz) or fixed LO and varying IF (2GHz - 6GHz) signals.

 The circuit employs a double rat race configuration to effectively cancel image signals without filtering and offers superior signal to noise performance.

The TU-W1401601 GaAs PHEMT MMIC attenuator/ SPST switch is a 90 to 100GHz device with a single input and output. The attenuation value may be adjusted to any value within the specified attenuation range. The chip is manufactured on a 50um substrate with 100um gate length. All bond pads and the die underside are gold plated. The control voltage ranges from +1.5V to -1.5V, the latter giving maximum attenuation

A packaged version of each device is also available with WR10 waveguide input and output on request.

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.
