Hittite introduces 2 & 5 W PAs with on chip power detectors, cover 9-14 GHz
Hittite Microwave Corp., the world class supplier of complete MMIC-based solutions for communication and military markets, has launched three new GaAs pHEMT MMIC power amplifiers which cover the 9 to 14 GHz frequency range and are ideal for microwave radio, military and space, SATCOM and test and measurement applications.
The HMC952 and the HMC952LP5GE are four stage GaAs pHEMT MMIC 2 Watt Medium Power Amplifiers with temperature compensated on chip power detectors which operate between 9 and 14 GHz. These amplifiers provide 33 dB of gain, +35 dBm of saturated output power, and 27% PAE (Power Added Efficiency) from a +6V supply. With up to +43 dBm output IP3 the HMC952LP5GE is ideal for high linearity applications in military and space as well as high capacity point-to-point and point-to-multi-point radios. The HMC952 die may be easily incorporated into MCMs, while the HMC952LP5GE leadless QFN 5 x 5 mm surface mount packaged version is compatible with high volume assembly equipment. Both amplifier versions are a much smaller alternative to bolt down power amplifier solutions, and complement Hittite's unmatched selection of active and passive components for microwave and millimeterwave radio applications.
The HMC1053 is a four stage GaAs pHEMT MMIC 5 Watt Power Amplifier with Power Detector which operates between 9 and 14 GHz. The HMC1053 provides 34 dB of gain, +43 dBm output IP3 and +38 dBm of saturated output power at 26% PAE from a +7V power supply. The HMC1053 exhibits excellent linearity and is optimized for high capacity point-to-point and point-to-multi-point radio systems.
These powerful amplifiers also feature I/Os that are internally matched to 50 Ohms and require no external matching components which makes them ideal for use as drivers, or as the final power stage in a microwave transmitter chain.
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. Released data sheets are available on-line at www.hittite.com.
