Richardson RFPD, Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a new ultra-wideband power amplifier module from Analog Devices, Inc (ADI).

The HMC-C582 is a GaAs MMIC pHEMT power amplifier in a miniature, hermetic module with replaceable SMA connectors that operates between 0.01 and 20 GHz. The device typically provides 24 dB of gain, up to +36 dBm output IP3 and up to +26 dBm of output power at 1 dB gain compression. Inputs/outputs (I/Os) are internally matched to 50 Ω and are DC blocked. Integrated voltage regulators allow flexible biasing and sequencing control for robust operation.

Excellent gain flatness across the operating frequency range makes the new amplifier module ideal for electronic warfare (EW), electronic countermeasures (ECM), radar, fiber optic and test equipment applications.

According to ADI, additional key features of the HMC-C582 include:

  • Single 15 V supply
  • Gain flatness: +/- 1.5 dB (at 2 to 20 GHz)
  • Dimensions: 1.75 in x 1.62 in x 0.525 in
  • Packaging: Hermetic ML-4-1
