Hittite's Wideband GaAs pHEMT MMIC Power Amplifier Covers DC to 40 GHz
New Multi-Throw Switches are Ideal for Microwave Radio, SATCOM and Test Applications!
Wideband GaAs pHEMT MMIC Power Amplifier Covers DC to 40 GHz!
New Distributed PA Chip Delivers up to +25 dBm
Saturated Output Power
Chelmsford, MA, December 10, 2010 - Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class
supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets, has introduced a new GaAs pHEMT
MMIC Power Amplifier which is ideal for test instrumentation, microwave radio, and military and space applications
from DC to 40 GHz.
HMC930 is a GaAs pHEMT MMIC Distributed Power Amplifier die which operates between DC and 40 GHz, and delivers
up to 13 dB of gain, +33.5 dBm output IP3 and +22 dBm of output power at 1 dB gain compression. The input
and output return losses of the
HMC930 are better than 12 dB and 16 dB respectively, across the band. The gain flatness is excellent at ±0.3
dB from 12 to 32 GHz, while a slightly positive gain slope in this same band makes the
HMC930 ideal for microwave radio, and military EW and ECM applications. This compact power amplifier die
occupies less than 4.25 mm2, consumes only 175 mA from a +10 V supply, and is specified for operation over the -55
to +85 ºC temperature range. Samples 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
