Hittite's 2 Watt Power Amplifiers with On Chip Power Detectors Cover 9-14 GHz
July 27, 2012 Press Release
-- High Gain, High Linearity PAs are Ideal for X-Band Applications
Chelmsford, MA, 7/27/2012 –
Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication &
military markets, has introduced two new, 2 Watt GaAs pHEMT MMIC power amplifiers which cover the 9 to 14 GHz
frequency range and are ideal for microwave radio, military and space, SATCOM and test & measurement applications.
HMC952 and the
HMC952LP5GE are four
stage GaAs pHEMT MMIC 2 Watt Medium Power Amplifiers with temperature compensated on chip power detectors which
operate between 9 and 14 GHz. These amplifiers provide 33 dB of gain, +35 dBm of saturated output power, and 27%
PAE (Power Added Efficiency) from a +6V supply. With up to +43 dBm output IP3 the
HMC952LP5GE is ideal for
high linearity applications in military and space as well as high capacity point-to-point and point-to-multi-point
radios. These powerful amplifiers also feature I/Os that are internally matched to 50 Ohms and require no external
matching components which makes them ideal for use as drivers, or as the final power stage in a microwave
The HMC952 die may be
easily incorporated into MCMs, while the
HMC952LP5GE leadless QFN
5 x 5 mm surface mount packaged version is compatible with high volume assembly equipment. Both amplifer versions
are a much smaller alternative to bolt down power amplifier solutions, and complement Hittite’s unmatched
selection of active and passive components for microwave and millimeterwave radio applications.
SMT product 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
