Hittite announces a family of low noise amplifiers for microwave radio, test, and sensor applications from 7 to 32 GHz. The HMC516, HMC517, HMC518, and HMC519 family of GaAs PHEMT MMIC low noise amplifier die is designed to meet the needs of microwave radio designers who want a low noise front end device that can also provide enough output power to drive a mixer LO or function as a general purpose buffer amp. These LNAs achieve noise figures as low as 1.8 dB while providing up to 21 dB gain and +17 dBm Psat. The chips can be integrated into hybrid or MCM assemblies.
