MACOM Technology Solutions and X-Microwave have jointly announced 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.
This allows designers to take advantage of MACOM's MMIC performance with the added ability to seamlessly interconnect hundreds of compatible, pre-characterized X-MWblock components with solderless building block flexibility. This reduces evaluation and design complexity. 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.
