Product Details

The HMC870LC5 is a GaAs MMIC pHEMT Distributed Driver Amplifier packaged in a leadless 5x5 mm surface mount package which operates between DC and 20 GHz. The amplifier provides 17 dB of gain, 8Vp-p saturated output swing and features output swing cross point adjustment. Gain flatness is excellent at ±0.5 dB as well as very low additive RMS jitter of 300 fs for 10 Gbps operation.

The HMC870LC5 provides Metro and Long Haul designers with scalable power dissipation for varying output drive requirements. (<0.4W at VOUT = 3.6VP-P and <1W at VOUT = 8.5VP-P) The HMC870LC5 has a very wide supply (VDD) operating range from +3.3V to +7V, and the RF I/Os are internally matched to 50 Ohms.
