Product Details

The HMC-C056 is a ×2 active broadband frequency multiplier module, using gallium arsenide (GaAs), pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (pHEMT) technology in a miniature HSM. When driven by a 6 dBm signal, the multiplier provides 14 dBm typical output power from 8 GHz to 21 GHz. The fOUT isolation is 16 dBc at 15 GHz with respect to the output signal level.

The HMC-C056 is a frequency multiplier, featuring dc blocked inputs/outputs. The HMC-C056 is ideal for use in local oscillator (LO) multiplier chains for point to point and VSAT radios yielding reduced devices count vs. traditional approaches. The low additive SSB phase noise of −142 dBc/Hz at 100 kHz offset has minimal impact on system level noise performance.
