HMC487LP5 Functional Diagram

General Description

The HMC487LP5(E) is a high dynamic range GaAs PHEMT MMIC 2 Watt Power Amplifier housed in leadless 5x5 mm surface mount packages. Operating from 9 to 12 GHz, the amplifier provides 20 dB of gain, +33 dBm of saturated power and 20% PAE from a +7V supply voltage. Output IP3 is +36 dBm typical. The RF I/Os are DC blocked and matched to 50 Ohms for ease of use. The HMC487LP5(E) eliminates the need for wire bonding, allowing use of surface mount manufacturing techniques.
