Hittite's New Three Watt Power Amplifier is Ideal-- PA with Integrated Power Detector Covers 12 - 16 GHz
for VSAT and Microwave Radio
Chelmsford, MA, 09/02/2011 – Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets, announces the release of a new SMT Packaged, 3 Watt GaAs pHEMT MMIC Power Amplifier which is ideal for VSAT, microwave radio, military, and test & measurement equipment applications from 12 to 16 GHz.
The HMC995LP5GE is a four stage GaAs pHEMT MMIC 3 Watt Power Amplifier with an integrated temperature compensated on-chip power detector which operates between 12 and 16 GHz. The HMC995LP5GE provides 27 dB of gain, +35.5 dBm of saturated output power, and 24 % PAE (power added efficiency) while operating from a +7V supply. The HMC995LP5GE exhibits excellent linearity and is optimized for high capacity digital microwave radio. This powerful amplifier is also ideal for 13.75 to 14.5 GHz Ku-and VSAT transmitters and SATCOM applications. The HMC995LP5GE amplifier I/Os are internally matched to 50 Ohms the amplifier requires no external matching components, making it ideal for use as a driver or as the final power stage in a microwave transmitter chain
The HMC995LP5GE is packaged in a leadless QFN 5 x 5 mm surface mount package which is compatible with high volume assembly equipment and is a much smaller alternative to bolt down power amplifier solutions. The HMC995LP5GE complements Hittite’s unmatched selection of SMT active and passive components for microwave and millimeterwave radio applications.
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.
