Tue, 05/22/2001 - 10:42am
StratEdge announced the availability of a new 25 to 31 GHz leaded package designed for easy manufacturing of devices with high thermal management need. The new product, StratEdge part number 580403, is a leaded product for commercial applications that performs at Ka-Band. Prior to this, leaded package from StratEdge were available from DC to 23 GHz. This off-the-shelf package makes it possible to obtain a device in the 26 to 31 GHz frequency range that has already been packaged and readied for conventional soldering and assembly.

Applications for the package include all KA-Band applications such as LMDS, satellite communications, automotive radar, and point-to-point/multipoint. These packages are key in the last mile distribution of broadband for voice, data, and video communications. The StratEdge 580403 can be widely used to package power amplifiers, low noise amplifiers, switches, and can be customized to MCMs. Based on the StratEdge LCC Series, the 580403 package uses a standard copper composite base incorporated with StratEdge's patented microstrip-embedded microstrip-microstrip transition design. A plastic cap lid finishes the structure and provides protection for the device. The outside ceramic dimension is .450× .450 (11.43 mm × 11.43 mm). The cavity dimension is .250× .250 (6.35 mm × 6.35 mm). There are two RF and 8 DC I/Os. The composite metal base provides thermal conductivity and expansion matched to the high frequency chips. In addition to designing and manufacturing the package, StratEdge can also provide assembly and test.
