The HMC943APM5E is a four stage, gallium arsenide (GaAs), pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (pHEMT), monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC), >1.5 W power amplifier that operates between 24 GHz to 34 GHz. The HMC943APM5E provides 23 dB of gain, 34 dBm of saturated output power (PSAT), and 23% power added efficiency (PAE) from a 5.5 V supply. The high output third-order intercept (IP3) of 39 dBm makes the HMC943APM5E ideal for microwave radio applications. A power detector output is also available. The HMC943APM5E amplifier input/outputs (I/Os) are internally matched to 50 Ω. The device is packaged in a leadless, 5 mm × 5 mm, surface-mount LFCSP_CAV package, and requires no external matching components.

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 HMC943APM5E evaluation board is a 2 layer board fabricated using Rogers 4350 and best practices for high frequency RF design. The RF input and RF output traces have a 50 Ω characteristic impedance. The circuit board is attached to a heat sink using SN96 solder and provides a low thermal 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, to control the temperature of the HMC943APM5E, attach the evaluation board to a temperature controlled plate.
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.
