Looking for alternatives or replacements to MMIC devices recently obsoleted by Broadcom / Avago?

You’re not alone. Custom MMIC is aware of various and continued industry-wide obsolescence of GaAs MMIC products from large suppliers. It’s impacting production needs and new RF and microwave product and system design decisions across the industry.

On December 1, 2017, Broadcom announced obsolescence of over 1,000 part numbers from the former Avago brand product catalog, including the remainder of their millimeter-wave IC devices. 

For reference, you’ll find an Excel sheet of these Broadcom Avago parts here. 

We have created a cross reference to Custom MMIC alternatives (based on electrical performance) to the obsolete Avago MMICs. Unfortunately, none of Custom MMIC’s standardized solutions are direct, drop-in replacements, but many are functional alternatives for you to consider. And we can offer custom MMIC engineering and packaging support services any time to meet your exact needs.

Custom MMIC remains focused on the needs of military, aerospace, space and instrumentation customers. We have introduced over 20 high performance GaAs and GaN MMICs in 2017. Custom MMIC now offers over 120 GaAs and GaN MMICs, with quick turn-around for evaluation boards and samples. As you’ll find, our web site has full MMIC product datasheets and downloadable s-parameter data to help you evaluate your various options.

To request immediate price and delivery of any of our MMICs visit our RFQ page.
