Product Details

The HMC-AUH256 is a GaAs MMIC HEMT four stage Driver Amplifier which covers the frequency range of 17.5 to 41 GHz. The chip can easily be integrated into Multi-Chip-Modules (MCMs) due to its small (1.93 mm²) size. The HMC-AUH256 offers 21 dB of gain and +20 dBm output power at 1 dB compression from a bias supply of +5V @ 295 mA. The HMC-AUH256 may also be used as a frequency doubler. Detail bias condition to achieve doubler operation.

Tools & Simulations


Sys-Parameter Models for Keysight Genesys

Sys-Parameter models contain behavioral parameters, such as P1dB, IP3, gain, noise figure and return loss, which describe nonlinear and linear characteristics of a device.


Design Tools


ADIsimRF is an easy-to-use RF signal chain calculator. Cascaded gain, noise, distortion and power consumption can be calculated, plotted and exported for signal chains with up to 50 stages. ADIsimRF also includes an extensive data base of device models for ADI’s RF and mixed signal components.

Design Resources

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.
