Hittite Microwave Corp. in Chelmsford, Mass., is offering a connectorized wideband driver-amplifier module for electronic warfare, electronic countermeasures, radar, space, and test equipment applications from 2 to 35 GHz. The HMC-C038 is a gallium arsenide (GaAs) monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) distributed driver-amplifier packaged in a miniature, hermetic module with replaceable 2.92 mm connectors. Operating between 2 and 35 GHz, the HMC-C038 provides 12 dB of gain, +29 dBm output IP3, and as much as +18 dBm of output power at 1 dB gain compression. Gain flatness is excellent from 2 to 16 GHz at ±0.5 dB for test and measurement applications, company officials say. The HMC-C038 also exhibits a mid-band noise figure of 4 dB and is specified for operation over the full -55 to 85 degrees Celsius military temperature range. The HMC-C038 is also designed with integrated voltage regulators, which allows for flexible biasing of the negative and positive supply pins, with internal bias sequencing circuitry. The I/Os are internally matched to 50 Ohms and DC blocked. For more information contact Hittite Microwave online at
