Hittite Microwave Corporation, represented by ASD Technology in Australia and New Zealand has introduced four new GaAs InGaP HBT MMIC VCO products. The new GaAs InGaP HBT MMIC VCO products can be used for Test Equipment, Industrial Control, VSAT radio, Point-to-Point/Point-to-Multi-Point Radio and Military applications from 6.65 to 10.15 GHz.
The HMC507LP5 (E), HMC508LP5 (E), HMC509LP5 (E) and HMC511LP5 (E) are fully integrated VCOs that cover 6.65 to 10.15 GHz, feature SSB phase noise of -115 dBc/Hz, and half frequency outputs.
The VCO products integrate resonators, negative resistance devices and varactor diodes. The VCO products also exhibit phase noise performance over temperature, shock, and process variations due to the oscillator’s monolithic structure.
The power output from the HMC507LP5 (E), HMC509LP5 (E) and HMC511LP5 (E) is typically +13.5 dBm from a +5V supply. The power output from the HMC508LP5 (E) is +15 dBm from a +5V supply. Each of the VCOs is packaged in a leadless QFN 5 x 5 mm surface mount package, and requires no external matching components.
