HMC442LM1 Functional Diagram

General Description

The HMC442LM1 is a broadband 17.5 to 24 GHz GaAs PHEMT MMIC Medium Power Amplifier in a SMT leadless chip carrier package. The LM1 is a true surface mount broadband millimeterwave package offering low loss & excellent I/O match, preserving MMIC chip performance. The amplifier provides 14 dB of gain and +23 dBm of saturated power at 27% PAE from a +5V supply voltage.

This 50 Ohm matched amplifier has integrated DC blocks on RF in and out and makes an ideal linear gain block, transmit chain driver or LO driver for HMC SMT mixers. As an alternative to chip-and-wire hybrid assemblies the HMC442LM1 eliminates the need for wirebonding, thereby providing a consistent connection interface for the customer.
