W-Band Family of Diodes

MACOM Expands Diode Portfolio with Three 80 GHz to 100 GHz Wideband Control Products

The microwave industry’s first integrated W-band diode products that operate between 80 GHz – 100 GHz frequency range while also achieving high linearity and 1dB power compression of approximately +25 dBm. The portfolio includes the MASW-011111-DIE single pole, double throw switch, MAAV-011014-DIE wideband Voltage Variable Attenuator (VVA) and MAAD-011038-DIE 3-bit step digital attenuator. These new parts are ideally suited for a multitude of applications, including Aerospace & Defense, Medical, Passive Imaging, Radiometry, SATCOM and Test Instrumentation.


MASW-011111-DIE is a wideband single pole, double throw switch that offers 0.8 dB insertion loss over the operating frequency range with 25 dB of isolation.

MAAV-011014-DIE is a wideband Voltage Variable Attenuator (VVA) that offers < 3 dB insertion loss, > 25 dB attenuation range and return loss > 10 dB in all attenuation states.

MAAD-011038-DIE is a wideband 3-bit step digital attenuator with 1 dB LSB, 7 dB attenuation range and return loss > 12 dB in all attenuation states.
