MACOM Introduces Industry Leading Integrated Bias Network Portfolio for 2 - 18 GHz
The integrated bias network features low loss and high performance with exceptional repeatability over a wide frequency range
Lowell, Mass — M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings, Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high performance RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products today, announced a fully monolithic broadband surface mount bias network utilizing MACOM’s patented HMIC process.
The MABT-011000 is designed for customers who need a rugged HMIC device with low loss and high performance with exceptional repeatability through millimeter frequencies. The large vias reduce inductance and allow customers to easily solder down the part, while the gold backside metallization provides the RF and DC grounding.
The MABT-011000 is suitable for the DC biasing of PIN diode control circuits. It functions as an RF-DC de-coupling network as well as the DC return and contains a series DC blocking capacitor. DC currents up to 60 mA and DC voltages up to 50 V may be used.
“The MABT-011000 greatly simplifies bias networks while delivering low loss and high performance, making this a reliable and efficient fully monolithic broadband surface mount bias network for 2-18 GHz,” said Paul Wade, Product Manager. “Utilizing MACOM’s patented HMIC process ruggedizes the bias network, which is ideal for the DC biasing of PIN diode control circuits.”
The table below outlines typical performance:
2 – 18 GHz
Insertion Loss (dB) at 12 GHz
RF – DC Isolation (dB) at 12 GHz
Input Return Loss (dB) at 12 GHz
Output Return Loss (dB) at 12 GHz
Production quantities and samples of MABT-011000 are available from stock. Final datasheets and additional product information can be obtained from the MACOM website at: www.macom.com.
