Hittite's Compact New MMIC LNA Covers 0.3 to 3 GHz and Occupies Only 4.5 mm2
August 7, 2012 Press Release
-- High Linearity and Wide Bandwidth in a 2.15 x 2.1 mm Package
Chelmsford, MA 8/7/2012 - Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets, has released a new broadband GaAs pHEMT MMIC low noise amplifier. The HMC374SC70E is housed in a compact 2.15 x 2.1 mm surface mount package and is ideal for automotive, fixed wireless, CATV, microwave radio, cellular infrastructure and repeater applications from 0.3 to 3.0 GHz.
The HMC374SC70E is a high dynamic range pHEMT MMIC LNA which delivers 1.6 dB noise figure, +34 dBm output IP3 and 14 dB small signal gain at 900 MHz. With saturated output power up to +19 dBm and output IP3 to +36 dBm, the HMC374SC70E is also ideal for driving the LO port of high linearity mixers and for transmitter pre-driver applications. This broadband MMIC LNA requires no external matching, is unconditionally stable, and operates from a single supply from +3 to +3.6V. Compared to a discrete implementation, the HMC374SC70E enables higher reliability, better consistency, less PCB area, and reduced component count.
The HMC374SC70E consumes only 75 mA from a +3.3V supply and is housed in a RoHS compliant plastic surface mount package. The HMC374SC70E is also available in a SOT-26 package as the HMC374E.
Samples and evaluation PC boards for all SMT packaged products are available from stock and can be ordered via the company's e-commerce site or via direct purchase order. Released data sheets may be found at www.hittite.com.
