HMC383 Functional Diagram

General Description

The HMC383 is a general purpose GaAs PHEMT MMIC Driver Amplifier which operates between 12 and 30 GHz. The amplifier provides 16 dB of gain and +18 dBm of saturated power from a +5V supply. Consistent gain and output power across the operating band make it possible to use a common driver/LO amplifier approach in multiple radio bands. The HMC383 amplifier can easily be integrated into Multi-Chip-Modules (MCMs) due to its compact size, single supply operation, and DC blocked RF I/Os. All data is measured with the chip in a 50 Ohm test fixture connected via 0.025mm (1 mil) diameter wire bonds of minimal length 0.31mm (12 mils).
