The HMC637ALP5E is a gallium arsenide (GaAs), monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC), pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (pHEMT) distributed power amplifier which operates between 0.1 GHz and 6 GHz. The amplifier provides 13 dB of gain, 44 dBm output third-order intercept (IP3), and 29 dBm of output power at 1 dB gain compression while requiring 400 mA from a 12 V supply. Gain flatness is ±0.75 dB from 100 MHz to 6 GHz making the HMC637ALP5E ideal for electronic warfare (EW), electronic counter-measure (ECM), radar and test equipment applications. The HMC637ALP5E amplifier radio frequency (RF) I/Os are internally matched to 50 Ω, and the 5 mm × 5 mm lead frame chip scale package (LFCSP) is compatible with high volume surface-mount technology (SMT) assembly equipment.

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.
