The HMC8142 is an integrated E-band gallium arsenide (GaAs), pseudomorphic (pHEMT), monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC), medium power amplifier with a temperature compensated on-chip power detector that operates from 81 GHz to 86 GHz. The HMC8142 provides 21 dB of gain, 25 dBm of output power at 1 dB compression, 29 dBm of output third-order intercept, and 26 dBm of saturated output power at 20% power added efficiency (PAE) from a 4 V power supply. The HMC8142 exhibits excellent linearity and is optimized for E-band communications and high capacity wireless backhaul radio systems. The amplifier configuration and high gain make it an excellent candidate for last stage signal amplification before the antenna. All data is taken with the chip in a 50 Ω test fixture connected via a 3 mil wide × 0.05 mil thick × 7 mil long ribbon on each port.

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.
