Hittite Microwave Corporation announces its SMT MMIC wideband low noise amplifier (LNA) which covers test and measurement equipment, microwave radio and military EW applications. The HMC519LC4 GaAs pHEMT MMIC LNA is rated from 18 to 31 GHz, and it delivers 14-dB gain, a 3.5-dB noise figure and 24-dBm output IP3. It also exhibits consistent output power and optimal gain flatness, making it suitable for test and measurement equipment and in applications which require coverage of multiple microwave radio bands with a single MMIC. This compact, self-biased LNA provides up to 24 dBm output IP3 while consuming only 75 mA from a single 3-V supply. The Psat output power of 15 dBm enables this LNA to function as an LO driver for balanced, I/Q or image reject mixers.
