Analog Devices Medium-Power Driver Amplifier Delivers High Gain and Output Power
Analog Devices introduced a medium-power, distributed driver amplifier which operates between 24 and 35 GHz.
The HMC1131 amplifier provides 22-dB of gain, +35-dBm output IP3, and +24 dBm of output power at 1-dB gain compression. The new amplifier reduces the number of components required to achieve the desired output power and small signal gain, which lowers development costs and design time by enabling simpler transmit line-ups and higher integration. Based on a GaAs (gallium-arsenide) pHEMT (pseudomorphic high-electron mobility transistor) design, the HMC1131 is ideal for civil and defense communications systems, including point-to-point and point-to-multi-point radios and VSAT and SATCOM applications. The HMC1131 is capable of supplying +25 dBm of saturated output power with 16 percent PAE and is housed in a compact, leadless 4×4 mm ceramic surface-mount package.
