LOWELL, Mass. -- May 28, 2014

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high
performance RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products, today announced three
new additions to its portfolio of discrete mixers. These ultra small mixers
provide industry leading frequency bandwidth in standard surface mount,
plastic packages, enabling system developers to achieve new levels of design
versatility and cost efficiency for applications spanning test and
measurement, electronic warfare, point to point wireless and more.

The new MAMX-011021 high IP3 mixer supports high linearity for applications
including high bit rate transmitters and receivers. This mixer covers the 5-33
GHz RF frequency range and DC-5 GHz IF frequency range, integrating a single
ended cold FET structure and diplexer for approximately 9 dB of conversion
loss with +22 dBm IIP3 to ensure low distortion.

The new MAMX-011022 image reject mixer is targeted at medium data rate, long
haul, low noise systems, and is optimized for upconversion and downconversion.
This mixer provides image rejection of 18 dB and covers the 5-28 GHz RF
frequency range and DC-5 GHz IF frequency range, with conversion loss of 12 dB

The MAMX-011023 low noise active mixer is designed for down frequency
conversion and supports very low noise of 7 dB typical. This mixer covers the
4-23 GHz RF frequency range and DC-8 GHz IF frequency range, and supports
conversion gain of 7 dB typical and low power consumption at 3v/15mA.

All three of MACOM’s new mixers are available in surface mount, industry
standard plastic TDFN packaging, and are sized at a mere 1.5mm x 1.2mm.

“These new additions to MACOM’s growing portfolio of mixers are ideally suited
for wideband applications for which performance, ease of use and cost
effectiveness are key considerations,” said Tom Galluccio, Product Manager,
MACOM. “The frequency bandwidth coverage, small size and design flexibility
enabled by these new mixers is unmatched by competing plastic packaged
