Hittite Microwave Corp. has launched three new product lines: Mux & Demux, DC Power Management and Broadband Time Delays. These new product lines support broadband test & measurement, automotive telematics, Cellular/3G, LTE/WiMAX/4G, fiber optic and military applications.
Hittite’s new Multiplexer (Mux) and Demultiplexer (Demux) product line supports data serialization up to 28 Gbps. The HMC854LC5 4:1 Multiplexer and the HMC855LC5 1:4 Demultiplexer support 28 Gbps data serialization and deserialization, respectively, and are ideal for broadband test & measurement, SONET OC-192, and FPGA interfacing applications.
The HMC920LP5E introduces Hittite’s new DC Power Management product line. The HMC920LP5E is an active bias controller that generates a regulated drain voltage and actively adjusts the gate voltage of an external amplifier to achieve constant bias current. It can be used to bias any enhancement and depletion type amplifier operating in Class-A regime with drain voltages (VDRAIN) from 3 to 15 V and drain currents (IDRAIN) up to 500 mA.
The HMC910LC4B & HMC856LC5 are the first products released in the new Broadband Time Delay product line. The HMC910LC4B is a DC to 24 GHz analog time delay that supports data transmission to 32 Gbps or clock signal delay up to 24 GHz. The HMC856LC5 5-bit digital time delay provides nearly 100 ps of delay range with 3 ps resolution and supports 28 Gbps data.
