Chelmsford, MA — Hittite Microwave Corporation has introduced three new SMT packaged GaAs pHEMT MMIC low noise amplifiers (LNAs) which are ideal for automotive, broadband, cellular/3G, WiMAX/4G and fixed wireless applications from 2.1 to 6 GHz.
The HMC715LP3E, HMC716LP3E and HMC717LP3E are GaAs pHEMT MMIC LNAs which are rated from 2.1 to 2.9 GHz, 3.1 to 3.9 GHz, and 4.8 to 6 GHz, respectively. These high linearity LNA MMICs deliver up to 19 dB gain and +33 dBm output IP3, with noise figure as low as 0.9 dB.
In addition, the LNAs can operate from either a +3V or +5V bias supply, making them ideal for infrastructure and subscriber applications in automotive, Cellular/3G, WiMAX/4G and other broadband wireless transceivers.
All three high linearity LNAs share a common pinout and are housed in RoHS compliant 3x3 mm QFN SMT packages. The devices are internally matched for ease of use, and feature an externally adjustable bias current allowing the user to tailor the linearity performance of the LNA for each transceiver application.
Data sheets for the HMC715LP3E, HMC716LP3E and HMC717LP3E are available.
