LOWELL, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MACOM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high-performance analog RF, microwave, millimeterwave and photonic semiconductor products, today announced that it has commenced sample shipments of its highly integrated E-Band transceiver (Tx) and receiver (Rx) modules, the MAMF-011057 and the MADC-011014, designed to enable the emerging wideband cellular backhaul and 5G millimeterwave market needs. Helping to accelerate the evolution to higher capacity backhaul, MACOM’s surface mountable E-Band Tx and Rx modules simplify the design and manufacturing of low cost E-band point to point radios. MACOM’s E-Band module solution will be featured in a 5G millimeterwave product demo at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) 2016.
MACOM’s MAMF-011057 is a transceiver featuring a balanced IR mixer, x8 LO multiplier, envelope detector, RF buffer amplifier, RF power amplifier and output power detector in a small form factor surface mount module. The module operates from 71-86 GHz and is designed to be used in direct conversion applications. The output of the Tx module is a WR12 interface for ease of use.
The MADC-011014 is a receiver module integrating a balanced IR mixer with a x8 LO multiplier and LNA into a small form factor surface mount module. This device operates from 71-86 GHz and is designed to be used in direct down conversion applications. The RF input to the Rx module is a WR12 interface for ease of use.
MACOM complements these E-Band modules with best in class phase noise voltage controlled oscillators (VCOs) matched to the module requirements for a total solution.
MACOM believes these modules greatly simplify the design of Wireless Backhaul E-Band radios and that their high integration levels help reduce overall E-Band radio BOM costs. As a result, MACOM anticipates that these modules will play a key role in lowering E-Band cost of ownership and growing the footprint of E-Band radios within the Network Operator Wireless Backhaul space.
“Market and customer feedback on our initial samples of the E-Band Tx and Rx modules has been very positive, as evidenced by multiple design wins at Tier 1 OEMs,” said Preet Virk, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Carrier Networks, MACOM. “The E-Band market is primed for explosive growth and our innovative modules, offering best in class performance, are seen as a key component enabling the viable establishment of E-Band as a high capacity solution for cellular backhaul. We look forward to several production ramps expected to commence in late 2016.”
MACOM will be featuring the E-Band Rx and Tx modules at IMS, Booth #939, May 22nd-27th in San Francisco, California. To make an appointment to see this private demonstration, contact your local sales representative.
