Hittite Microwave Corp. in Chelmsford, Mass., is introducing four gallium nitride (GaN) microwave/millimeter wave integrated circuit (MMIC) power amplifiers for radar systems operating in the 2 to 20 GHz frequency range, as well as for test instruments and communications systems.
The HMC1086F10 is a 25W GaN RF and microwave power amplifier operates between 2 and 6 GHz, and comes in a 10-lead flange mount package. The amplifier typically provides 23 dB of small signal gain, +44 dBm saturated output power, and delivers +46 dBm output IP3 at +33 dBm output power per ton. The amplifier draws 1100 milliamps quiescent current from a 28-volt DC supply. The HMC1086 is the die version of the HMC1086F10. This 25-watt GaN MMIC power amplifier also operates between 2 and 6 GHz and provides 22 dB of small signal gain, +44 dBm of saturated output power, and +48 dBm output IP3 at +33 dBm output power per ton. Both amplifiers have RF I/So that is DC blocked and matched to 50 ohms.
