GaAs MMIC Doubler features self-biased configuration.
August 22, 2012 -
Housed in 3 x 3 mm, 16-lead plastic QFN package, Model XX1010-QT delivers +20 dBm output saturated power and 35 dBc fundamental suppression. Unit covers 14.625-15.0/29.25-30.0 GHz frequency bands and integrates gain stage, doubler, and driver amplifier into single device. DC blocking and bypassing capacitors eliminate need for any external components. Compliant with RoHS, doubler is suited for SATCOM and millimeter-wave Point-to-Point Radio applications.

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Announces New GaAs MMIC Doubler with Integrated Gain, Self-Biased Doubler and Driver Stages
Doubler Delivers +20 dBm Pout and 35 dBc Fundamental Suppression
Lowell, MA, - M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech), a leading supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced today a GaAs MMIC Doubler for VSAT applications.
The XX1010-QT is an active doubler in a RoHS compliant 3X3mm 16-Lead plastic QFN package that delivers +20 dBm output saturated power (Pout) and 35 dBc fundamental suppression. Using a GaAs pHEMT process, the XX1010-QT covers the 14.625-15.0 / 29.25-30.0 GHz frequency bands and integrates a gain stage, doubler, and driver amplifier into a single device.
The doubler is well suited for SATCOM and millimeter-wave Point-to-Point Radio applications. The XX1010-QT integrates DC blocking and bypassing capacitors, eliminating the need for any external components. The device has a self-bias configuration, requiring only a positive 5V supply.
"The high level of integration coupled with a standard 3X3mm plastic QFN package offers our customers an optimal cost effective solution by saving precious board area and reducing component count," stated Amer Droubi, Product Manager, "The XX1010-QT is an ideal driver stage to the final output power amplifier in Ka band VSAT terminals."
The table below outlines typical performance:
Parameters Units XX1010-QT
Frequency GHz 14.625-15.0 / 29.25-30.0
Input Return Loss dB 12
Output Return Loss dB 14
Fundamental Suppression dBc 35
Supply Currency mA 200
Production quantities and samples of XX1010-QT are available from stock. Final datasheets and additional product information can be obtained from the M/A-COM Tech website at: www.macomtech.com
