General Description

The HMC409LP4(E) is a high efficiency GaAs InGaP HBT MMIC Power amplifier operating from 3.3 to 3.8 GHz. The amplifier is packaged in a low cost, leadless SMT package. Utilizing a minimum of external components the amplifier provides 31 dB of gain and +32.5 dBm of saturated power from a +5V supply voltage. The power control (Vpd) can be used for full power down or RF output power/current control. For +22 dBm OFDM output power (64 QAM, 54 Mbps), the HMC409LP4(E) achieves an error vector magnitude (EVM) of 2%, meeting WiMAX 802.16 linearity requirements.
