Chelmsford, MA – November 29, 2007 – Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets, announces the release of a hermetically packaged SMT GaAs MMIC Low Noise Amplifier for use in microwave radio, military and space applications from 3.5 to 7 GHz. The HMC392LH5 is a hermetic SMT LNA that provides 15 dB of gain, while contributing only 2.5 dB of noise figure over the frequency range of 3.5 to 7GHz. The amplifier provides excellent output IP3 performance of +24 dBm as well as an output P1dB of +14 dBm. In addition to the flexibility of selecting six possible bias options that allow the user to choose the desired bias point and output power, the amplifier’s I/O’s are internally matched to 50 ohms and DC blocked for robust wideband performance. The HMC392LH5 MMIC LNA is housed in a hermetic RoHS compliant, 5x5mm leadless SMT package, and consumes typically 43 mA of current from a single +5V supply.
