Amplifier Modules Deliver Ultra-Low Phase Noise

Thu, 08/12/2010 - 10:16am


Hittite Microwave Corporation has introduced a series of GaAs HBT Ultra Low Phase Noise Amplifier modules which are ideal for high performance applications in microwave radio, military & space, radar systems, test instrumentation and synthesizers from 1.5 GHz to 11 GHz. The HMC-C076, HMC-C077, and HMC-C079 are GaAs HBT Ultra-Low Phase Noise Amplifier modules which are rated from 7 GHz to 11 GHz, 1.5 GHz to 5.0 GHz, and 3 GHz to 8 GHz, respectively. These amplifiers provide a phase noise contribution of -180, -157 and -168 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset respectively, enabling superior modulation accuracy in high resolution radar and synthesizer applications. These amplifier modules also provide high dynamic range and exhibit 9 dB, 14 dB, and 11 dB of gain, 6 dB, 4.5 dB, and 6 dB noise figure and up to +33 dBm, +26.5 dBm and +25 dBm of output IP3 respectively. Also suitable for transceiver architectures, these modules provide up to +25, +22 and +21 dBm of saturated output power respectively with good gain flatness and minimal variation over temperature.
