Multi-Mix® Microtechnology is a new innovative process for microwave, multilayer integrated circuits and micro-multifunction modules (MMFM®). This process is based on fluoropolymer composite substrates, which are bonded together into a multilayer structure using a fusion bonding process. The fusion process provides a homogeneous dielectric medium for superior electrical performance at microwave frequencies.
The bonded multilayers, with embedded semiconductor devices, MMICs, etched resistors, circuit patterns and plated-through via holes, form a surface mount module which requires no further packaging. In fact, the MMFM® structure becomes the package. This small outline, low-profile structure is lightweight, and the surface-mount format is compatible with microstrip or coplanar waveguide.
The process controls of the Multi-Mix® methods allow a low cost manufacturing approach that is suitable for high or low volume production. The platform strategy of MMFM® reduces engineering cycle time and enables the Multi-Mix® process to be an economical solution for new designs.
Multi-Mix PICO® is the next big leap for
Multi-Mix technology. Multi-Mix PICO® reduces the size
of single-function microwave components from 84% to 87% compared
to the previous Multi-Mix designs, which were until now the
smallest in the industry. Merrimac accomplishes this without
sacrificing performance. Multi-Mix PICO® provides the
highest power handling ability in the smallest footprint and
overall size, and at the lowest cost of any other multilayer
construction. Orders of magnitude reduction in size and cost
provide greater value to our customers, which can be passed
on to their customers. Please visit the Multi-Mix
