Hittite Microwave Corp., a supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication and military markets, has released a new broadband GaAs pHEMT MMIC low noise amplifier. The HMC374SC70E is housed in a compact 2.15 x 2.1 mm surface mount package and is ideal for automotive, fixed wireless, CATV, microwave radio, cellular infrastructure and repeater applications from 0.3 to 3.0 GHz.

The HMC374SC70E is a high dynamic range pHEMT MMIC LNA which delivers 1.6 dB noise figure, +34 dBm output IP3 and 14 dB small signal gain at 900 MHz. With saturated output power up to +19 dBm and output IP3 to +36 dBm, the HMC374SC70E is also ideal for driving the LO port of high linearity mixers and for transmitter pre-driver applications. This broadband MMIC LNA requires no external matching, is unconditionally stable, and operates from a single supply from +3 to +3.6V. Compared to a discrete implementation, the HMC374SC70E enables higher reliability, better consistency, less PCB area, and reduced component count.

The HMC374SC70E consumes only 75 mA from a +3.3V supply and is housed in a RoHS compliant plastic surface mount package. The HMC374SC70E is also available in a SOT-26 package as the HMC374E.

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. Released data sheets may be found at

the device is very good for design engineer because it require very less space. if gain and its iip3 would be good then it is mind-blowing.
