  • HMC1126 and HMC1127 distributed power amplifiers simplify instrumentation and microwave radio applicationsAnalog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI) introduced today the HMC1127 and the HMC1126 MMIC (Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit) distributed power amplifiers. Covering the frequency range of 2-50 GHz, these new power amplifier die simplify system design and improve performance by eliminating the need for RF switches between frequency bands. Each amplifier incorporates I/Os that are internally matched to 50 Ohms, facilitating easy integration into multi-chip modules. All data is taken with the chips connected via two 0.02-mm (1 mil) wire bonds measuring 0.31-mm (12 mils) in length. Based on a GaAs (gallium-arsenide) pHEMT (pseudomorphic high-electron mobility transistor) design, the HMC1126 and HMC1127 are ideal for instrumentation, microwave radio and VSAT antennas, aerospace and defense systems, telecommunications infrastructure, and fiber optic applications.
