Brand Microwave Introduces High-Frequency, Ultra-Small Form Factor Chip-Scale Packaging Platform

MORGAN HILL, California – (BUSINESS WIRE) – April 6, 2022–

Marki Microwave, a radio frequency and microwave innovator for over 30 years, today unveiled a family of microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) based GaAs equalizers and attenuators, designed using the company’s new Chip Scale Packaging (CSP) platform. . With ultra-high frequency operation in an ultra-small form factor, industry-leading packaging capacity can be ported to customer cards using standard surface mount assembly processes.

“For many years, Marki Microwave has been trying to develop the highest possible frequency surface mount package in the industry,” said Christopher Marki, CEO of Marki Microwave. “The CSP family of attenuators and equalizers is the next iteration in the company’s portfolio of performance breaking technology. This innovative approach to packaging makes each product capable of delivering high frequency operations along with the smallest form factor. “

Marki Microwave’s new CSP technology enables high frequency operation, improved electrical performance, low variation and unit-to-unit uniformity, while optimizing size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C). Additionally, the technology allows for extreme miniaturization of the surface mount footprint while providing superior return loss in an ultra-compact form. Unlike traditional packaging currently available on the market, Marki Microwave’s unique approach to CSP technology for GaAs MMIC products can be leveraged across all Marki product categories, enabling mold-like size and performance with the ease of use of a surface mount product.

Chip scale package MMIC equalizers enhance low pass filtering effects in high-speed and radio frequency digital systems

Built for superior MMIC GaAs performance, the MEQ6-26CSP1 and MEQ10-45CSP1 are the latest additions to Marki Microwave’s robust portfolio of surface mount and nude die equalizers. Building on the cutting-edge technology of their predecessors, the products’ compact 1.5 x 1.5mm footprint is reinforced by Marki Microwave’s CSP platform.

The MEQ6-26CSP1 is a passive MMIC equalizer with a positive gain slope from DC to 26GHz and a typical insertion loss of 0.3dB at 26GHz. Featuring 6dB DC attenuation, it provides uniform unit-to-unit repeatability in a small form factor, making it an ideal solution for compensating for low-pass filtering effects in digital microwave and high-speed systems.

Second in the lineup, the MEQ10-45CSP1 has a positive gain slope of DC to 45GHz with DC attenuation of 10dB. It provides a typical insertion loss of 0.7 dB at 45 GHz and a standing voltage wave ratio (VSWR) of 1.5 over the entire band. The MEQ10-45CSP1 is suitable for a variety of high performance applications including high speed data, telecommunication and amplifier compensation.

The 10 dB attenuator enables precision level accuracy and radio frequency power for demanding applications

As the third member of Marki Microwave’s CSP family, the ATN10-0050CSP1 is a precision surface-mount GaAs MMIC attenuator that offers 10 dB attenuation from DC to 50 GHz and an excellent return loss typical of 22 dB on the band. A 50 ohm match is maintained over the entire operating frequency range and its 1.5 x 1.5mm package simplifies the design of space-constrained applications such as overhead, SWaP-C, and high-channel count systems .

Estimated availability for MEQ6-26CSP1, MEQ10-45CSP1, and ATN10-0050CSP1 is early May 2022. Low volume pricing starts at $ 36.38 for equalizers and $ 21.54 for attenuator. Prices and technical features are subject to change without notice. For samples and sales information, please contact
