Mimix Broadband Introduces Single Chip GaAs MMIC Up-converter That Enables Lower Cost and Smaller Size Designs
This up-converter, identified as XU1000, used in conjunction with Mimix's XP1000 power amplifier and XB1000 gain block amplifier forms a complete millimeter-wave transmitter. Furthermore, the XU1000 enables the development of smaller size and lower cost designs and is well suited for wireless communications applications such as millimeter-wave point-to-point radio, local multipoint distribution services (LMDS), SATCOM and VSAT applications.
Mimix performs 100% on-wafer RF, DC and output power testing on the XU1000, as well as 100% visual inspection to MIL-STD-883 method 2010. The chip also has surface passivation to protect and provide a rugged part with backside via holes and gold metallization to allow either a conductive epoxy or eutectic solder die attach process.
Engineering samples are available today from stock and production quantities are available within 8 to 12 weeks after order processing. Technical support is also available from Mimix's applications engineers at 281.526.0536.
