Macom To Show RF To Light Portfolio

Integrated components for access, backhaul and next-generation wireless to feature at Mobile World Congress 2016

Macom, a supplier of RF, microwave, and photonic semiconductors, will debut a newly expanded portfolio of wireless infrastructure products at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016.

"The breadth of Macom's leading-edge technology expertise and wireless application experience is unrivaled in the semiconductor industry, enabling mobile network operators around the globe to keep pace with burgeoning bandwidth demands while minimising capital and operating expenses," said Preet Virk, senior vice president and general manager, Carrier Networks, Macom.

"Addressing the needs of 4G, 4.5G and 5G wireless infrastructure, with the proven ability to support high frequency backhaul and access technologies, Macom provides a one stop shop for high-performance RF, microwave, millimeterwave and optical components," he added.

Among the solutions and technologies that Macom will be exhibiting are the MAGb series of GaN power transistors for macro basestations. These are said to produce GaN performance at LDMOS like cost structures at scaled volume production levels. MAGb power transistors target all major cellular bands within the 1.8 to 3.8GHz frequency range, and support peak output power up to 700W.

Also featured will be the newest entries in Macom's family of GaAs PAs for wireless backhaul applications. According to the company, these enable full frequency band coverage from 7 to 86GHz, with narrow and wideband PA options to ensure breakthrough deployment flexibility.

Macom will also be showing E-Band PAs and integrated modules for millimeterwave wireless backhaul applications, next-generation 5G and MIMO technologies, and range of optical fronthaul (CPRI) and optical backhaul (GPON) lasers and chipsets.

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.
