MACOM and X-Microwave Collaborate to Enable Faster, Easier Design of High-Performance RF Systems

Combination of MACOM’s high-performance MMICs and X-Microwave’s simulation and prototyping platform affords designers “building block” design agility for faster time to market

LONDON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 5, 2016 — MACOM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high-performance RF, microwave, millimeterwave and photonic products, and X-Microwave, an innovative leader in modular system design, today announced the availability of MACOM-based RF components for use with X-Microwave’s online simulation and prototyping platform. Pre-configured with high-performance MACOM MMICs, these drop-in and cascadable components called “X-MWblocks” enable designers to quickly and easily architect modular, end-to-end RF systems.

For over 60 years, MACOM’s design and applications experts have spearheaded innovation in the RF, microwave and millimeterwave domain. Proven engineering and technical support teams are continuing in this legacy with a next generation of wide band MMIC solutions designed for the most demanding customer applications.

MACOM’s support for the X-Microwave platform equips designers to take advantage of MACOM’s industry-leading MMIC performance and quality, with the added ability to seamlessly interconnect hundreds of compatible, pre-characterized X-MWblock components with solderless, building block flexibility. This dramatically reduces evaluation and design complexity and enables designers to accelerate their time to market. With this collaboration, X-Microwave users can now take advantage of a broad selection of MACOM MMICs, spanning amplifiers, mixers, frequency multipliers, octave band VCOs, RF switches, voltage variable attenuators and phase shifters.

“MACOM is recognized in the industry for delivering MMIC products with superior RF performance, packaging and reliability all of which are optimized to meet designers’ most demanding system challenges,” said Graham Board, Senior Director, RF and Microwave, at MACOM. “Through our collaboration with X-Microwave, designers now have the ability to leverage all of these benefits in a manner that can dramatically accelerate their system prototyping and shorten design cycles.”

“X-Microwave is committed to optimizing the design process for RF engineers through every phase of the development process,” said John Richardson, President and CEO, X-Microwave. “With the addition of MACOM MMICs to our component ecosystem, X-Microwave users are assured leading-edge RF performance and quality from the foremost innovator in the RF and microwave industry.”
