GigOptix products to be demonstrated include the following leading RF MMICs and E-band products:

  • EWH2001: high-performance DC to 20GHz power amplifier MMIC
  • EXP8602: high-performance 81-86GHz high E-band power amplifier
  • EXP8603: high-performance 81-86GHz high E-band power amplifier
  • EXP7602: high-performance 71-76GHz low E-band power amplifier
  • EXP7603: high-performance 71-76GHz low E-band power amplifier
  • EXE8602: high performance 71-86GHz broadband power detector
  • iT2008: high-performance DC to 26.5GHz power amplifier
  • iT2009: high-performance 2-26.5GHz power amplifier

GigOptix E-Band Products

GigOptix has two low E-band power amplifiers (71-76GHz), the EXP7602 and EXP7603, and two high E-band power amplifiers (81-86GHz), the EXP8602 and EXP8603. GigOptix provides additional E-band solutions including: the EXO8602ZZ Lange Coupler, and the EXE8602 power detector.

GigOptix has also developed highly-integrated silicon-germanium (SiGe) transmitter and receiver chipsets:

  • EXU7610: low E-band transmitter
  • EXD7610: low E-band receiver
  • EXU8610: high E-band transmitter
  • EXD8610: high E-band receiver

These SiGe transmitter and receiver chips are expected to be available for sampling in late 2014.

When the EXP7602/3 and EXU7610 are combined, they provide an excellent 2-chip low E-band transmitter solution. When the EXP8602/3 is combined with the EXU8610, an outstanding 2-chip solution for the high E-band transmitter is achieved.
