Microwave Journal editors Pat Hindle and Gary Lerude talk with Custom MMIC Founder and CEO on their recent “Frequency Matters” show about our how we're able to release our industry best MMICs so quickly, our recent staff and facility expansions, how we handle obsolescence protection, and some of the many new parts we're unveiling at IMS 2019 in Boston in Booth # 1350. Adding to our RF and microwave signal chain solutions, which is now at over 170 MMICs, is a DC to 20 GHz voltage variable attenuator (VVA); an easy to design-in 2 to 20 GHz driver amplifier with low noise figure across the whole band and nice gain and power; and an exciting millimeter-wave DC to 70 GHz broadband distributed amplifier MMIC that is very flat, and offers solid return loss. These high frequency MMIC solutions are being developed in response to high demand up into millimeter-wave frequencies. Some of the key strategic drivers for us is 5G of course, but also developing increased options for surface mount MMICs up into Ka, K, Ku, and even Q and U band microwave frequencies. Our test and measurement and radar system customers are benefiting from the value of being to engineer with the highest performance MMIC devices and enter into production with MMICs being delivered in SMT packages on tape and reel for their automated assembly processes. Another exciting announcement is that our ultra-low noise low noise amplifier MMCs (LNAs) which began at S- and C-band, will soon be available at X-, Ku-, K-, and Ka-bands, too! Our goal is to push the boundaries of noise figure with a whole suite of LNA MMICs across all major bandwidths. And finally, we're pleased to announce that our long-awaited standardized GaN Mixer MMICs are transitioning to full production, and will be accompanied by a group of low phase noise amplifiers (LPNAs) that can be used to drive them.
