MACOM Extends Leadership in Networking Applications with New Wideband, High Dynamic Range Frequency Doubler

High suppression device provides excellent output power and is ideal for use in LO chain applications for cellular backhaul

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 new wideband Frequency Doubler for point-to-point radios and cellular backhaul applications.

The MAFC-004403 is a frequency doubler solution for customers who need a multiplier with excellent input and output return loss and isolation. Operating over the 16 - 24 GHz bandwidth, the device is packaged in a 4mm x 4mm QFN that is RoHS compliant and compatible with reflow temperatures to 260 °C. Unlike the competition, the frequency doubler exhibits input power level ranges from -5 to +5 dBm, delivering a typical output power of 17dBm. The device also demonstrates high 1xFIN and 3XFIN isolations providing customers with an excellent solution.

This doubler provides microwave radio designers a solution for generating the required LO frequencies aimed at the 18GHz to 42GHz bands”, said David Richardson, Product Line Director. “When combined with the chipsets and VCOs that MACOM already offers for these bands, its provides a complete high performance solution for the customer.”

The table below outlines typical performance:
