Hittite's New pHEMT Gain Block/Driver Amplifier Covers DC to 10 GHz
Darlington Amplifier Delivers up to +20 dBm Output Power
MA, October 6, 2010 - Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for
communication & military markets, has introduced a new SMT pHEMT MMIC Driver Amplifier which is ideal for high
linearity applications in cellular/4G, broadband, military and fixed wireless equipment applications from DC to 10
HMC788LP2E is a GaAs pHEMT MMIC Gain Block Amplifier which is rated from DC to 10 GHz. This internally matched
Darlington amplifier delivers up to 14 dB gain, +20 dBm output P1dB, and up to +30 dBm output IP3. The active
on-chip bias circuit allows the
HMC788LP2E to exhibit excellent gain and output power stability over temperature, while consuming only 76 mA
from a single +5 V supply. This 2x2 mm DFN packaged amplifier can be used as either a cascadable 50 Ohm gain stage
or to drive the LO port of many of Hittite’s single and double-balanced mixers. The wide bandwidth and simple
application circuit makes the
HMC788LP2E ideal for use in multi-band infrastructure applications such as software defined radios, and in
point-to-point and test and measurement subsystems.
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.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas
and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer.
The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available
