The HMC518 chip is a high dynamic range GaAs PHEMT MMIC Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) which covers the 20 to 32 GHz frequency range. The HMC518 provides 15 dB of small signal gain, 3dB of noise figure and has an output IP3 greater than 23 dBm. The chip can easily be integrated into hybrid or MCM assemblies due to its small size. All data is tested with the chip in a 50 Ohm test fixture connected via 0.075mm (3 mil) ribbon bonds of minimal length 0.31 mm (12 mil). Two 0.025 mm (1 mil) diameter bondwires may also be used to make the RFIN and RFOUT connections.

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.
