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 EV1HMC8415LP6G evaluation board consists of a two layer PCB fabricated from 10 mil thick Rogers 4350B copper clad or equivalent, mounted to an aluminum heat spreader. The heat spreader assists in providing thermal relief to the part as well as mechanical support to the PCB. Mounting holes on the heat spreader allow it to be easily attached to larger heat sinks for improved thermal management. The RFIN and RFOUT ports are populated by 2.9 mm female coaxial connectors and their respective RF traces are of 50 ohm characteristic impedance. The board is populated with components suitable for use over the entire Operating Temperature range of the part. Because the HMC8415LP6GE is intended for pulsed DC bias operation, a separate drain pulser PCB is provided to simplify evaluation without the need to create a custom pulser. The drain pulser PCB has four layers and is fabricated from Isola 370HR or equivalent. For information regarding the required connections, DC biasing via the drain pulser, and typical performances, refer to the HMC8415LP6GE data sheet.
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.
