- 32-terminal, ceramic, leadless chip carrier (LCC)
The HMC606LC5 is a gallium arsenide (GaAs), indium gallium phosphide (InGaP), heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT), monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) distributed amplifier housed in a 32-terminal, ceramic, leadless chip carrier (LCC) package that operates from 2 GHz to 18 GHz. With an input signal of 12 GHz, the amplifier provides ultralow phase noise performance of −160 dBc/Hz at a 10 kHz offset, representing a significant improvement over field effect transistor (FET)-based distributed amplifiers.
The HMC606LC5 provides 13.5 dB of small signal gain, 27 dBm output IP3, and 15 dBm of output power for 1 dB compression while requiring 64 mA from a 5.0 V supply. The input and output of the HMC606LC5 amplifier are internally matched to 50 Ω and are internally dc blocked.

Application Notes (3)
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.
