0.3 GHz to 6 GHz, 35 W, GaN Power Amplifier
The HMC8205BF10 is a gallium nitride (GaN) broadband power amplifier delivering 45.5 dBm (35 W) with 38% power added efficiency (PAE) across an instantaneous bandwidth of 0.3 GHz to 6 GHz. No external matching is required to achieve full band operation. Additionally, no external inductor is required to bias the amplifier. Also, dc blocking capacitors for the RFIN and RFOUT pins are integrated into the HMC8205BF10.
The HMC8205BF10 is ideal for pulsed or continuous wave (CW) applications, such as military jammers, wireless infrastructure, radar, and general-purpose amplification.
The HMC8205BF10 amplifier is a 10-lead ceramic leaded chip carrier (LDCC).
- Military jammers
- Commercial and military radar
- Power amplifier stage for wireless infrastructure

This product has been released to the market. The data sheet contains all final specifications and operating conditions. For new designs, ADI recommends utilization of these products.
The EV1HMC8205BF10 evaluation board is a two layer PCB fabricated using 10 mil thick Rogers 4350B copper clad. The PCB is mounted to a copper heat spreader which assists in providing thermal relief to the part as well as mechanical support to the PCB. Mounting holes allow for easy attachment to larger heat sinks for improved thermal management. The RFIN and RFOUT ports are populated by 2.9 mm female coaxial connectors and their respective RF traces have a 50 ohm characteristic impedance. The board is populated with components suitable for use over the entire Operating Temperature range of the part. Please refer to the HMC8205 data sheet for information regarding DC connections, biasing, and typical performance.
ADI has always placed the highest emphasis on delivering products that meet the maximum levels of quality and reliability. We achieve this by incorporating quality and reliability checks in every scope of product and process design, and in the manufacturing process as well. "Zero defects" for shipped products is always our goal.
