Product Details

The HMC7229LS6 is a four stage, gallium arsenide (GaAs), pseudomorphic high electron mobility transfer (pHEMT), monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC), 1 W power amplifier, with an integrated temperature compensated on-chip power detector that operates between 37 GHz to 40 GHz. The HMC7229LS6 provides 24 dB of gain and 32 dBm of saturated output power at 18% PAE at 39 GHz from a 6 V supply. With an excellent IP3 of 40 dBm, the HMC7229LS6 is ideal for linear applications such as high capacity, point to point or multipoint radios or VSAT/SATCOM applications demanding 32 dBm of efficient saturated output power. The radio frequency (RF) input/outputs are internally matched and dc blocked for ease of integration into higher level assemblies. The HMC7229LS6 is housed in a ceramic, 6 mm × 6 mm, high frequency, air cavity package that exhibits low thermal resistance and is compatible with surface-mount manufacturing techniques.

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.
