MACOM Technology Solutions Announces New Solder-able Flip Chip Varactor

High Q Constant Gamma GaAs Varactor is Ideal for High Frequency VCO Tuning

Lowell, MA,  –M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, today announced a new broadband general purpose varactor diode for Multi-market applications.

The MAVR-000120-1411 is designed for customers who need a versatile, low cost, ultra-small varactor solution for Police Radar, Point to Point, Electronic Warfare and Aerospace and Defense applications. The device is a package-less varactor with contacts that allows for standard solder reflow manufacturing processes. Unlike its nearest alternatives, the MAVR-000120-1411 is fabricated using a GaAs process which provide customers full passivation for increased performance and reliability

The constant gamma varactor is designed for tuning capacitance in the 2-12V range. The low parasitic capacitance and inductance allow for operation up to 30GHz.

“This Flip-Chip is a high frequency GaAs varactor suitable for VCO applications where high Q operation is critical to design performance” said Paul Wade, Product Manager.
