Hittite Microwave Corp., a supplier of complete MMIC-based solutions for communication and military markets, announced that it is introducing 36 new products, including three new leading performance product lines, at the 2006 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium and Exhibition. These and other Hittite Microwave products are on display, and a new live product demonstration area is showcasing products from the company’s three new product lines in an expanded 20’x30’ corporate exhibit.

Three new product lines to be Introduced: synthesizers, data converters and power detectors. The initial product from Hittite’s new synthesizer product line is the HMC-T1000A 10 MHz to 8 GHz dual synthesized signal generator. The HMC-T1000A is comprised of two independently controllable/programmable synthesizers, and combines ultra low SSB phase noise of -135 dBc/Hz at 100 KHz offset, with fast 10 microsecond switching in a standard 19” rack-mountable 3U chassis.

The HMC660LC4B wideband Track-and-Hold Amplifier is the first product within the new data converter product line. Fabricated in a SiGe BiCMOS process, the HMC660LC4B is designed for direct sampling of full-scale 1Vpp signals with up to 4.5 GHz input bandwidth with a maximum 3 GHz clock rate.

The HMC600LP4(E) is the first of a family of leading edge power detectors to be introduced within the new power detector product line. The HMC600LP4(E) logarithmic detector/controller is fabricated in a SiGe BiCMOS process, and delivers a high ±3 dB dynamic range of up to 75 dB, with outstanding accuracy and temperature stability from 50 to 4000 MHz.

The Two Volume 2006 Designer's Guide Catalog is available as well as an updated June 2006 CD-ROM catalog detailing over 430 products. New literature including the Summer 2006 Product Selection Guide, Newsletter and CD-ROM can be obtained by visiting Hittite’s booth #2145 at IMS 2006 or can be requested at www.hittite.com.
