Hittite Microwave Corporation introduces five GaAs PHEMT 1 W and 2 W MMIC power amplifiers that are suitable for point-to-point and point-to-multi-point radios, test instrumentation, military and space applications from 6 to 13 GHz. Optimized for high gain and high output power, the HMC590 and HMC590LP5(E) are high dynamic range GaAs PHEMT MMIC 1 W power amplifiers, which operate from 6 to 9.5 GHz. These amplifiers provide 25 dB of gain, + 31.5 dB of saturated output power, typical output IP3 of + 40 dBm and 25% PAE from a +7 V supply.
