The HMC788A is a 0.01 GHz to 10 GHz, gain block, monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) amplifier using gallium arsenide (GaAs), pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (pHEMT) technology.
This 2 mm × 2 mm LFCSP amplifier can be used as either a cascadable 50 Ω gain stage, or to drive the local oscillator (LO) port of many of the single and double balanced mixers from Analog Devices, Inc. with up to 20 dBm output power.
The HMC788A offers 14 dB of gain and an output IP3 of 33 dBm while requiring only 76 mA from a 5 V supply.
The Darlington feedback pair exhibits reduced sensitivity to normal process variations and yields excellent gain stability over temperature while requiring a minimal number of external bias components.
- Cellular, 3G, LTE, WiMAX, and 4G
- LO driver applications
- Microwave radio
- Test and measurement equipment
- Ultra wideband (UWB) communications
Markets and Technologies
Product Lifecycle Recommended for New Designs
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.
Evaluation Kits (1)
EV1HMC788ALP2 is one of two evaluation boards for HMC788ALP2E. It includes a wideband bias tee that uses a conical inductor. This circuit is mechanically more fragile than EV2HMC788ALP2 which uses bias tee made from surface mount inductors, capacitors and resistors but has superior electrical performance. EV1HMC788ALP2 is populated with components suitable for use over the entire −40°C to +85°C operating temperature range of the HMC788ALP2E. To calibrate board trace losses, a through calibration path is provided. The through calibration path must be populated with RF connectors before use. For more details on the EV1HMC788ALP2 evaluation board see the HMC788ALP2E data sheet.
