The HMC-AUH312 is a gallium arsenide (GaAs), monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC), HEMT, low noise, wideband amplifier die that operates between 500 MHz and 80 GHz, providing a typical 3 dB bandwidth of 80 GHz. The amplifier provides 10 dB of small signal gain and a maximum output amplitude of 2.5 V p-p, which makes it ideal for use in broadband wireless, fiber optic communications, and test equipment applications.
The amplifier die occupies 1.2 mm × 1.0 mm, facilitating easy integration into a multichip module (MCM). The HMC-AUH312 can be used with or without a bias tee, and requires off-chip blocking components and bypass capacitors for the dc supply lines. Adjustable gate voltages allow for gain adjustment.

Tools & Simulations
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.
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.
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.
