The HMC7950 is a gallium arsenide (GaAs), pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (pHEMT), monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC). The HMC7950 is a wideband low noise amplifier that operates between 2 GHz and 28 GHz. The amplifier typically provides 15 dB of gain, 2.0 dB of noise figure, 26 dBm of output IP3, and 16 dBm of output power for 1 dB gain compression, requiring 64 mA from a 5 V supply. The HMC7950 is self biased with only a single positive supply needed to achieve a drain current, IDD, of 64 mA. The HMC7950 also has a gain control option, VGG2. The HMC7950 amplifier input/outputs are internally matched to 50 Ω and dc blocked. It comes in a 6 mm × 6 mm, 16-terminal LCC SMT ceramic package that is easy to handle and assemble.

Product Lifecycle Recommended for New Designs
This product has been released to the market. The data sheet contains all final specifications and operating conditions. For new designs, ADI recommends utilization of these products.
Evaluation Kits (1)
The HMC7950LS6 evaluation board is a two-layer board fabricated using Rogers 4350 and using best practices for high frequency RF design. The RF input and RF output traces have a 50 Ω characteristic impedance.
The evaluation board and populated components are designed to operate over the ambient temperature range of −40°C to +85°C. For proper bias sequence, please see the Applications Information section of the datasheet.
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.
