The HMC459 is a GaAs MMIC PHEMT Distributed Power Amplifier die which operates between DC and 18 GHz. The amplifier provides 17 dB of gain, +31.5 dBm output IP3 and +25 dBm of output power at 1 dB gain compression while requiring 290 mA from a +8V supply. Gain flatness is good making the HMC459 ideal for EW, ECM and radar driver amplifier applications. The HMC459 amplifier I/O’s are internally matched to 50 Ohms facilitating easy integration into Multi-Chip-Modules (MCMs). All data is with the chip in a 50 Ohm test fixture connected via 0.025mm (1 mil) diameter wire bonds of minimal length 0.31mm (12 mils).

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.
