Ideal for EW, ELINT, ECM & IFM Receivers & DF Radar Systems
Chelmsford, MA – January 07, 2011 – Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets has launched two new Successive Detection Log Video Amplifiers (SDLVAs) with a limited RF output feature that operates over the 1 to 26 GHz and 1 to 20 GHz frequency ranges respectively. The HMC813 and the HMC813LC4B are ideal for designers with space and power-constrained applications including EW and ELINT receivers, DF radar, ECM, IFM systems, and missile guidance.
Available in die and ceramic 4x4 mm SMT formats, the HMC813 and the HMC813LC4B feature power limiter circuitry at their RF outputs and carry a class 1A ESD rating (250V HBM). Also ideal for high speed channelized systems that require improved ESD performance, these SDLVAs employ a successive compression topology, which delivers a high logging range of 55 dB and provides a nominal log video output slope of 15 mV/dB. The HMC813 and the HMC813LC4B are capable of processing RF pulses with amplitudes from -53 dBm to +7 dBm with less than 10 ns rise/fall times, and with recovery times of less than 20 ns. These SDLVAs exhibit frequency flatness of better than ±1.5 dB at -25 dBm input power, while logarithmic linearity is better than ±0.5 dB over the full -55 °C to +85 °C operating temperature range. The HMC813 and the HMC813LC4B consume less than 153 mA from a single +3.3V supply.
Die samples, SMT product samples and evaluation PC boards for all SMT packaged products are available from stock and can be ordered via the company's e-commerce site or via direct purchase order.
