Hittite announces the first product within the company’s new Connectorized Module Product Line. The HMC-C001 wideband LNA module is suitable for military EW/ECM, space, test equipment, wideband telecom, microwave radio, and industrial applications from 2 to 20 GHz. The GaAs MMIC pHEMT low noise distributed amplifier module delivers a typical small signal gain of 15 dB and gain flatness of ± 0.5 dB from 2 to 18 GHz. This high dynamic range LNA module offers a mid-band noise figure of 2.0 dB and an output P1dB of +13.5 dBm, while its self biased topology consumes 65 mA from a single positive supply between +9 and +15 V. The module is internally matched to 50Ω, unconditionally stable, and has integral voltage regulation, overvoltage protection, and DC blocked RF ports for robust operation.
