StratEdge has hundreds of MC Series packages in standard, open-tooled configurations, with some designs optimized to operate at frequencies up to 18 GHz. All of the MC packages are MIL-STD hermetic. If you need a surface mount package, StratEdge can provide these packages with gull- wing formed leads. Flexibility is another reason to use an MC package since it’s inexpensive to change the lead design if you need to match an existing footprint. Because of their versatility, the MC family is used to package many devices including switches, amplifiers, modulator drivers, MEMS, diodes, FETs, ADCs, DACs, multifunctional MMICs, and more.
MC packages can be made with copper composite bases that provide excellent thermal conductivity. This gives you a low cost way to package your high power device in a fully hermetic package. The bases can also be made from alumina ceramic for applications that require an insulating die attach area, or a cavity with circuit traces.
Several packages have co-planar waveguide (CPW) transitions that provide good performance up to 18 GHz as drop-ins (straight leads) and to 12 GHz as surface mount (formed leads). Millions have been used in OC-48 and OC-192 applications. Please contact the factory for additional information on all of these options.
