HITTITE Microwave Corporation, represented by ASD Technology in Australia and New Zealand, has introduced four new high dynamic range SMT packaged MMIC 1 and 2 watt power amplifiers for point to point, point to multipoint, test equipment, and military applications from 7 to 32GHz.
The HMC486LP5, HMC487LP5 and HMC489LP5 are GaAs PHEMT MMIC power amplifiers that operate from 7 to 16GHz, deliver up to +33dBm of saturated output power at 20% PAE, and +40 dBm output IP3.
All three amplifiers are packaged in leadless 5 x 5mm QFN surface mount packages and share identical pin assignments. The amplifiers operate from a +7V supply and offer fully matched (50Ω) RF ports with internal dc blocking capacitors.
The HMC499LC4 is a high dynamic range GaAs PHEMT MMIC medium power amplifier housed in a "Pb free" and RoHS compliant 4 x 4mm leadless QFN SMT package. This amplifier operates from 21 to 32GHz and delivers 15dB gain, +24dBm saturated output power and +33dBm output IP3.
The HMC499LC4 operates from a +5V supply and offers fully matched (50Ω) RF ports with internal DC blocking capacitors.
These SMT packaged amplifiers are easily implemented on microwave radio and VSAT system PC boards.
