12-30 GHz SMT power amplifier for driver and LO buffer applications

10 August 2005 Analogue, Mixed Signal, LSI

Hittite Microwave offers a new RoHS compliant, SMT-packaged Medium Power Amplifier for microwave radio, test and sensor applications from 12 to 30 GHz. The HMC383LC4 GaAs PHEMT MMIC Medium Power Amplifier is designed to meet the needs of microwave radio designers by providing enough output power to function as a general purpose driver amplifier, or to drive the mixer port of one of Hittite's I/Q or Image Reject Mixers.

The HMC383LC4 delivers 15 dB gain, +18 dBm output P1dB, and consumes only 100 mA from a +5V supply. The RF I/Os are matched to 50 Ω and DC blocked, and its consistent gain and output power vs frequency enable a common driver/LO amplifier approach across multiple radio bands, says the manufacturer.

The HMC383LC4 SMT amplifier is housed in a leadless, 4 x 4 mm 'Pb Free' and RoHS-compliant package.
