Mimix Targets Mm-wave With GaAs PHEMTs

Fabless Texan GaAs chip developer Mimix Broadband introduces four new transmitter designs aimed at point-to-point radio and satellite communications.

Mimix Broadband has broadened its range of transmitter products with the release of four new GaAs MMIC devices in surface-mount packages.

The Houston, TX, firm, which became fabless in April this year when it sold its Santa Clara, CA, facility to Universal Semiconductor Technology, is targeting a range of wireless communication applications, including millimeter-wave point-to-point radio, and very small aperture terminal (VSAT) satellite communication stations.

Said to feature high linearity, gain control and broadband performance in a low-cost package, the MMIC components are manufactured using a 0.15 µm GaAs PHEMT process, and together they cover the 10-45 GHz frequency range.

"By offering these highly integrated transmitters in true surface-mount packages, customers can lower their material and assembly costs compared to chip-and-wire assembly," said Mimix product manager Paul Beasly.

The four individual transmitter components operate at 10-18 GHz; 18-25 GHz; 19-26 GHz; and 35-45 GHz.

The transmitters are available in small production quantities now.
