MACOM introduces new integrated SPDT switch and LNA for front end WLAN applications

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes analog semiconductors, components and subassemblies) has introduced a new integrated SPDT switch and Low Noise Amplifier (LNA), with bypass mode, for WLAN 802.11a,n,ac network applications.

Covering the 5 – 6 GHz bandwidth, the MAMF-010614 is packaged in a 2mm x 2mm 12-lead STQFN. The device, which includes an SPDT switch with an integrated LNA with bypass mode, allows for a simple and easy solution for real estate constrained customers, says the firm. MAMF-010614 delivers high isolation between Tx and Rx paths, low Tx  insertion loss and high gain.

“This multi function MMIC is useful to customers in WLAN applications where a bypass mode is required to avoid near-field distortion”, said Tom Galluccio, Product Manager. “The MAAM-010614 has low Tx insertion loss of 0.9 dB, high Rx gain performance of 12 dB and low Rx noise figure of 2.2dB, altogether making it a high performing solution in an ultra-small package.”

Typical performance:

Parameter Units MAMF-010614
Frequency GHz 5-6
Gain dB 12
Insertion Loss dB 6
Noise Figure dB 2.2
Isolation dB 19
Rx Input/ Output Return Loss dB 10
Rx Input IP3 dBm 10
Rx Input P1dB dBm -3
Quiescent Current mA 10
Tx Input/ Output Return Loss db 12

Production quantities and samples of MAMF-010614 are available from stock.
