Tucana: 94GHz Chipset

The Arralis Tucana range of multi-stage MMIC devices are fabricated on a robust gallium arsenide 50um substrate. The devices are supplied as die and enable the realisation of a complete 92-96GHz radar system front end with C/X band inputs and W-band outputs. All bond pads and the die backside are Ti/Au metallised, with a fully passivated amplifier elsewhere.

The MMICs are all compatible with conventional die attach methods, as well as thermo-compression and thermosonic wire bonding, making them ideal for MCM and hybrid microcircuit applications. All data shown herein is measured with the chip in a 50 Ohm environment and contacted with RF probes.
