Hittite's Rugged Low Phase Noise Amplifier Modules Now Offer the Best Value
September 12, 2012 Press Release
-- Hermetically Sealed Connectorized Modules Span 1.5 to 12 GHz!
Chelmsford, MA 9/12/2012
- Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication &
military markets, has recently reduced the list price of several of the GaAs HBT Ultra Low Phase Noise Amplifier modules.
These rugged connectorized amplifiers are ideal for high performance applications in microwave radio, military &
space, radar systems, test instrumentation and synthesizer applications from 1.5 to 12 GHz.
HMC-C079 are GaAs HBT Ultra-Low
Phase Noise Amplifier modules which are rated from 6 to 12 GHz, 7 to 11 GHz, 1.5 to 5.0 GHz, and 3 to 8 GHz, respectively.
These high performance amplifier modules exhibit a phase noise contribution as low as -180 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset,
enabling superior modulation accuracy in high resolution radar and synthesizer applications. Across the product line,
these high performance amplifier modules provide up to 14 dB of gain and up to +34 dBm output IP3, with noise figure
as low as 4.5 dB. Also ideal for transceiver architectures, these modules deliver up to +25 dBm of saturated output
power with good gain flatness and minimal variation over temperature.
Specified over the industrial temperature range of -55 °C to +85 °C and housed in miniature hermetic modules with
field replaceable SMA connectors, the
HMC-C079 operate from a single
+7V supply and consume between 110 and 300 mA of bias current, depending on the model selected.
These module amplifiers
offer a unique combination of performance, ruggedness and cost, and represent an outstanding value when compared to
competing solutions. The HMC-C072,
complement Hittite's broad line
of low noise and power amplifier products which are available in die, SMT and connectorized module formats with frequency
coverage to 86 GHz.
All connectorized module products are available from stock and can be ordered via the company's
e-commerce site or via direct purchase order. Released data sheets may be found at
