mmTron Introduces first Commercially available TMC774 Innovative High Performance 6G Semiconductor Low Phase-Noise Amplifier

August 10, 2022

New TMC774 mmWave Amplifier Enables 6G, Satellite, Defense, and Instrumentation Applications to Deliver Industry Leading High Performance

mmTron, a leading innovator and provider of high linearity mmWave semiconductor solutions, today announced the TMC774, a new ground breaking wideband mmWave amplifier for 6G, Satellite, Aerospace, Defense, and Instrumentation applications.

mmTron’s TMC774 6G broadband amplifier, which is in fabrication now, operates at frequencies from DC to 150 GHz (D Band) and offers superior wideband linear power output, phase noise and gain in an industry leading small footprint. The TMC774 features industry leading performance optimized for wide bandwidth multi-carrier high data throughput applications such as the emerging 6G cellular standard. This new mmWave amplifier will enable designers to offer much higher system performance at lower power as compared to competing multi-band solutions.

Seyed Tabatabaei, CEO, Founder, and President of mmTron, said, “mmTron is a pioneer in developing innovative high performance millimeter wave solutions for 5G, 6G, satellite communication, defense, and instrumentation systems. The TMC774 is a truly a breakthrough device for both commercial and defense applications. With its impressive 150GHz bandwidth, cutting-edge phase noise and highly linear performance, the TMC774 will enable many new next generation communication systems to offer significantly higher levels of performance than they could in the past.”

The TMC774 is available for pre-order now (under NDA) and is lead-free, and RoHS compliant. Measured data is expected by mid -January 2023, samples by early February 2023.

mmTron Introduces 2 To 20 GHz High OIP2, High Linearity GaAs MMIC Distributed PA

July 1, 2022

mmTron Inc., a leading provider of mmwave Custom MMICs and integrated transceiver modules, has developed TMC201, a distributed linear amplifier (PA) for commercial, industrial, space and military applications from 2 to 20 GHz.

Based on mmTron linear GaAs technology, the monolithic-microwave integrated-circuit (MMIC) distributed amplifier has 18dB of gain, delivers +26 dBm typical output power at 1-dB compression (P1dB), 2 dB of Noise Figure and 39 dBm OIP3 through 12 GHz and typically +23 dBm through 20 GHz. The TMC201 MMIC features impressive gain and gain flatness over its broad bandwidth across temperature -55 to +85°C, with typical temperature-dependent gain variation of less than 0.03 dB/°C.

The TMC201 is designed for excellent OIP2 making it ideal for applications in Electronic Warfare, Broadband Commercial Wireless and Optical Communications Systems as well as in Military Systems.

The TMC201 distributed amplifier is internally matched to 50 ohms and is unconditionally stable. It has typical input and output return loss of 15dB. It operates with typical drain voltages of +5 VDC and typical supply current of 180 mA.

TMC201 is supplied as a RoHS-compliant die measuring 2 x 1.5 x 0.1 mm. The MMIC amplifier is rated for storage temperatures from -65 to +150°C. It is 100% DC and RF tested and visually inspected to MIL-STD-883, Method 2010 requirements.
