Hittite's New Distributed Wideband Power Amplifiers Cover DC to 22 GHz
Chip and SMT Amplifiers are Ideal for ATE and Military Applications
MA, 08/03/2010 – Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for
communication & military markets, announces the release of two new chip and SMT GaAs pHEMT MMIC Power Amplifiers
which are ideal for military EW, space, and test & measurement equipment applications from DC to 22 GHz.
HMC797 is a 1 Watt GaAs pHEMT MMIC Power Amplifier chip which is rated from DC to 22 GHz, and delivers 14.5 dB
gain, +31 dBm saturated output power, and +40 dBm output IP3. The
HMC797 also exhibits a positive gain slope from DC to 22 GHz making it ideal for subsystems applications. The
chip consumes 400 mA from a +10 V supply and occupies only 4.48 mm2. The
HMC907 is a GaAs pHEMT MMIC Power Amplifier chip which is self-biased and is rated from 0.2 to 22 GHz. It
delivers 14 dB of gain, +20.5 dBm saturated output power, and +38 dBm output IP3. Gain flatness for the
HMC907 is excellent at +/- 0.6 dB from DC to 12 GHz. The HMC907 consumes 350 mA from a +10 V supply and
occupies only 3.87 mm2. Both chips feature RF I/Os that are matched to 50 Ohms which facilitates integration into
Multi-Chip Modules (MCMs).
For applications where an SMT compatible solution is preferred, the
HMC907LP5E offer similar performance to the HMC797 and HMC907, respectively. The
HMC797LP5E provides 13.5 dB of gain, +39 dBm output IP3, and +28 dBm of output power at 1 dB gain compression,
HMC907LP5E provides 12 dB of gain, +36 dBm output IP3 and +26 dBm of output power at 1 dB gain compression.
HMC907LP5E are housed in RoHS compliant 5x5 mm leadless QFN SMT packages.
HMC907 die products and the
HMC907LP5E SMT packaged products are specified for operation over the -55 to +85 ºC temperature range. Die
and SMT packaged product samples as well as evaluation 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. Related 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
in the form of WYSIWYG
