The single-ended, internally-matched MADT-011000 consumes 70 µA from a 4.5 V supply, while the matched detector and reference diodes provide temperature compensation in differential operation. The MADT-011000 is offered in both a 3 mm 16-lead QFN package and in bare die format, with ESD protection for reliability and ease of handling.

"The MADT-011000 is an extremely versatile power detector offered in both 3mm QFN and bare-die formats," said Graham Board, Senior Director of Product Marketing, MACOM. "The wide bandwidth and dynamic range, very low power dissipation and external directional coupler makes this an ideal solution for both narrow and wide bandwidth power control circuits. It is anticipated that this one power detector will cover all of the high-volume wireless backhaul bands from 5 to 44GHz, significantly simplifying component selection and circuit design for the radio designer."

For over 60 years, MACOM's design and applications experts have spearheaded innovation in the RF, microwave and millimeterwave domain, developing the industry's broadest portfolio of MMICs and components spanning the entire RF signal chain. Leveraging advanced, proprietary technologies, MACOM's heterogeneous semiconductor and packaging strategy is aimed at ensuring that each individual RF system function is fully optimized to deliver maximum performance at the appropriate cost. MACOM remains firmly committed to delivering true competitive advantage to our customers, providing superior technology, expertise, cost structures and supply chains - with no compromises.
