Northrop Grumman has announced that a range of MMICS produced by its MPS (Microelectronics Products and Services) division meet the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) 5G frequency allocations. MPS made the announcement last week at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) 2017.
“MPS’s low noise and high power technologies and products provide a differentiating advantage that allows operators the ability to maximize the number of users and revenue generation,“said Chris Brown, general manager, Northrop Grumman MPS. “The Northrop Grumman power amplifiers provide the high-linearity performance near peak output power levels required for complex modulations, which optimizes the data throughput within the FCC allocated bandwidth” said Brown.
“This same performance advantage is realised in the 5G receivers through the use of the Northrop Grumman low noise amplifiers utilising our GaAs and InP technologies. Between the power amplifiers, the low noise amplifiers and the mixers, we can address all of the 5G frequency bands.”
Also at IMS 2017, Northrop Grumman engineers presented on high power and high efficiency chipsets for Ku-Band, Ka-Band, V-Band, Q-Band, E and W-band communications, and on optimising ground, airborne and space-based communication links using Northrop Grumman’s advanced semiconductor products and technologies.
