Product Details

The HMC463LH250 is a GaAs MMIC pHEMT Low Noise AGC Distributed Amplifier packaged in a hermetic surface mount package which operates between 2 and 20 GHz. The amplifier provides 13 dB of gain, 3 dB noise figure and 18 dBm of output power at 1 dB gain compression while requiring only 60 mA from a +5V supply. An optional gate bias (Vgg2) is provided to allow Adjustable Gain Control (AGC) of 8 dB typical. Gain flatness is excellent at ±0.5 dB from 2 - 14 GHz making the HMC463LH250 ideal for EW, ECM RADAR, test equipment and High-Reliability applications. The HMC463LH250 LNA I/Os are internally matched to 50 Ohms and are internally DC blocked.

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.
