-- 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.

The 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 transmitter chain.Hittite's 2 Watt Power Amplifiers with On Chip Power Detectors Cover 9-14 GHz

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.
Die samples, 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 at www.hittite.com.
