The HMC8500PM5E is a gallium nitride (GaN), broadband power amplifier delivering 10 W (40 dBm), typical, with up to 55% power added efficiency (PAE) across an instantaneous bandwidth of 0.01 GHz to 2.8 GHz, at an input power of 30 dBm. The typical gain flatness is 3 dB at small signal levels.
The HMC8500PM5E is ideal for pulsed or continuous wave (CW) applications, such as wireless infrastructure, radars, public mobile radios, and general-purpose amplification.
The HMC8500PM5E amplifier is externally tuned using low cost, surface-mount components and is available in a compact LFCSP package.
- Extended battery operation for public mobile radios
- Power amplifier stage for wireless infrastructures
- Test and measurement equipment
- Commercial and military radars
- General-purpose transmitter amplification
Product Lifecycle Production
At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase. The product is appropriate for new designs but newer alternatives may exist.
Evaluation Kits (1)
The HMC8500PM5E evaluation board is a 2-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 board is attached to a heat sink using an electrically and thermally conductive epoxy providing a low thermal and low dc resistance path. Components are mounted using SN63 solder allowing rework of the surface-mount components without compromising the circuit board to heat sink attachment.
The evaluation board and populated components are designed to operate over the ambient temperature range of −40°C to +85°C. During operation, attach the evaluation board to a temperature controlled plate to control the temperature of the HMC8500PM5E during operation. For the proper bias sequence, see the Applications Information section within the data sheet.
A fully populated and tested evaluation board is available from Analog Devices, Inc., upon request.
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.
