Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets, has introduced a new series of GaAs HBT Ultra Low Phase Noise Amplifier modules which are ideal for high performance applications in microwave radio, military & space, radar systems, test instrumentation and synthesizers from 1.5 to 11 GHz. The HMC-C076, HMC-C077, and HMC-C079 are GaAs HBT Ultra-Low Phase Noise Amplifier modules which are rated from 7 to 11 GHz, 1.5 to 5.0 GHz, and 3 to 8 GHz, respectively.
These amplifiers provide a phase noise contribution of -180, -157 and -168 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset respectively, enabling superior modulation accuracy in high resolution radar and synthesizer applications. These amplifier modules also provide high dynamic range and exhibit 9, 14, and 11 dB of gain, 6, 4.5, and 6 dB noise figure and up to +33, +26.5 and +25 dBm of output IP3 respectively. Also ideal for transceiver architectures, these modules deliver up to +25, +22 and +21 dBm of saturated output power respectively with good gain flatness and minimal variation over temperature.
Specified for -55 °C to +85 °C temperature operation and housed in miniature hermetic modules with field replaceable SMA connectors, these modules operate from a +7 V single supply, and consume 300, 170, and 110 mA respectively.
These modules complement Hittite's expanding line of low phase noise amplifier products which are available in die, SMT and connectorized module formats, with frequency coverage up to 18 GHz.
All connectorized module products are available on-line and can be attained through the link below our logo on this page or via direct purchase order.
