HMC498LC4: GaAs PHEMT Medium Power Amplifier, 17 - 24 GHz Data Sheet10/20/20150 M
Features and Benefits
- Output IP3: +36 dBm
- Saturated Power: +26 dBm @ 23% PAE
- Gain: 22 dB
- +5V @ 250 mA Supply
- 50 Ohm Matched Input/Output
- RoHS Compliant 4x4 mm SMT Package
The HMC498LC4 is a high dynamic range GaAs PHEMT MMIC Medium Power Amplifier housed in a leadless “Pb free” SMT package. Operating from 17 to 24 GHz, the amplifier provides 22 dB of gain, +26 dBm of saturated power and 23% PAE from a +5V supply voltage. Noise figure is 4 dB while output IP3 is +36 dBm typical enabling the HMC498LC4 to function as a low noise front end as well as a driver amplifier. The RF I/Os are DC blocked and matched to 50 Ohms for ease of use. The HMC498LC4 eliminates the need for wire bonding, allowing use of surface mount manufacturing techniques.

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.View our quality and reliability program and certifications for more information.
