The HMC903LP3E is a self biased, gallium arsenide (GaAs), monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC), pseudomorphic (pHEMT), low noise amplifier (LNA) with an option bias control for IDQ reduction. It is housed in a 16-lead, 3 mm × 3 mm, LFCSP package. The HMC903LP3E amplifier operates from 6 GHz to 17 GHz, providing 18.5 dB of small signal gain and 1.7 dB noise figure in the 6 GHz to 16 GHz band, and an output IP3 of 25 dBm full band 6 GHz to 17 GHz, while requiring only 80 mA from a 3.5 V supply.
The P1dB output power of 14.5 dBm enables the LNA to function as a local oscillator (LO) driver for balanced, I/Q or image reject mixers. The HMC903LP3E also features an input and an output that are dc blocked and internally matched to 50 Ω, making it ideal for high capacity microwave radios and video satellite (VSAT) applications.

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.
