Hittite Press Release - October 25, 2011
Hittite's New Wideband Driver Amplifier Spans DC to 48 GHz
-- GaAs pHEMT MMIC Distributed Amplifier Delivers 0.25 Watts Output Power
MA, 10/25/2011 – Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for
communication & military markets, announces the release of a new Wideband GaAs pHEMT MMIC Distributed Power
Amplifier die which is ideal for military EW, test & measurement equipment, and broadband telecom equipment
applications up to 48 GHz.
HMC1022 is a 0.25 Watt GaAs
pHEMT MMIC Distributed Power Amplifier which operates between DC and 48 GHz. The amplifier provides 12 dB of gain,
+32 dBm output IP3 and +22 dBm of output power at 1 dB gain compression while consuming only 150 mA from a +10 V
HMC1022 exhibits a slightly
positive gain slope from 10 to 35 GHz, making it ideal for EW, ECM, Radar and test equipment applications.
HMC1022 is offered in bare
die form and features RF I/Os which are internally matched to 50 Ohms. Requiring only a few external bias
decoupling components, the
HMC1022 Wideband Distributed
Amplifier was developed for simplified integration into Multi-Chip-Modules (MCMs) and other higher level
assemblies and subsystems. The
HMC1022 complements Hittite’s
broad line of distributed low noise, driver, and power amplifiers, with frequency coverage up to 65 GHz.
