Mini-Circuits Expands Amplifier Design Capability, Welcomes Rhode Island-Based Design Group

Mini-Circuits has expanded its amplifier design capabilities with the addition of a new design engineering group dedicated to developing high-power amplifiers up to and beyond 1 kW through 8 GHz.

Lincoln, R.I. (Oct. 22, 2019) – Mini-Circuits has expanded its amplifier design capabilities with the addition of a new design engineering group dedicated to developing high-power amplifiers up to and beyond 1 kW through 8 GHz. The new team, which will be based in a new corporate design center in Lincoln with a satellite office at the Novio Tech Campus in Nijmegen, Netherlands, brings over 100 years of combined experience designing and developing RF amplifiers and power products.

Mini-Circuits currently offers over 75 standard power amplifier models from 2W to 100W covering bandwidths up to 18 GHz. The expansion will build on the popularity of the company’s existing power amplifier line and respond to industry demand with a wide range of new products and capabilities.

“We’re very excited to welcome this talented team to the Mini-Circuits family,” said Mini-Circuits Vice President of Technical Marketing, Steven Scheinkopf. “This expansion continues our long-term focus and success in the amplifier space. The knowledge and experience of the Rhode Island group will bring our offering to the next level both in terms of selection and truly leading-edge technology.”

The Lincoln team will be led by Product Line Manager, Korne Vennema. “We’re very fortunate to be part of a company with such a depth in RF components and solutions. We can’t wait to help further expand Mini-Circuits’ reliable high-power amplifier product offering,” said Mr. Vennema.

Before joining Mini-Circuits, Mr. Vennema held various design engineering, application support and management roles at Phillips, NXP Semiconductor and MACOM.

The Lincoln and Nijmegen offices now number among Mini-Circuits’ 14 design, manufacturing and sales locations spanning nine countries.

Over 800 Mini-Circuits Components Now Available in X-Microwave Drop-In Format

Expanded offering of Mini-Circuits products on X-Microwave’s modular drop-in format gives designers even more options to accelerate design cycles with the innovative X-MWsystem®.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. and ROUND ROCK, Texas (Oct. 14, 2019) – The X-Microwave portfolio of Mini-Circuits products now features over 800 Mini-Circuits models on over 1000 X-MWblock® drop-in modules, more than doubling the offering since the companies’ partnership launched in 2017. The expanded selection now includes models in 12 categories including:

  • Amplifiers
  • Attenuators
  • Couplers
  • Equalizers
  • Filters
  • Limiters
  • Mixers
  • Multipliers
  • Splitters
  • Switches
  • Transformers & Baluns
  • VCOs

 

In addition to the growing variety of drop-in blocks, X-Microwave has also introduced over 700 part numbers for Mini-Circuits components in connectorized housings for evaluation and integration into subassemblies.

X-Microwave’s innovative X-MWsystem® is the industry’s first truly modular, solderless evaluation system, incorporating thousands of physically compatible drop-in building blocks from multiple manufacturers for prototyping microwave assemblies. System blocks come fully characterized and modeled with X-Parameters®, S-Parameters and Sys-Parameters enabling easy simulation and physical configuration through X-Microwave’s free, online tools for non-linear simulation and mechanical layout. This unique, modular approach eliminates the need for custom evaluation board layouts, and has become a popular solution in the industry to shorten design cycles and accelerate time to market.

“Our partnership with X-Microwave has allowed us to offer a valuable and truly innovative resource to customers using Mini-Circuits components in their designs,” said Mini-Circuits Vice President of Technical Marketing, Steven Scheinkopf. “We’re very pleased to continue expanding the partnership to support our customers’ design efforts with even more options.”

“We are very excited about the number of Mini-Circuits parts that are now available on our drop-in format,” said X-Microwave President, John Richardson.  “Mini-Circuits’ broad range of parts and our modular system make it easy for designers to quickly transition from prototype to production hardware.  For maximum flexibility, we are aggressively designing in the full portfolio of Mini-Circuits SMT and die parts.”
