RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Hittite Expands GaN MMIC Product Line
New 10W GaN MMIC Power Amplifier Covers 6 to 18 GHz
Chelmsford, MA, 10/24/2013
– Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for
communication & military markets, announced a new Gallium Nitride (GaN) MMIC power amplifier
product which offers significant performance, size and durability advantages for communications,
test instrumentation and radar systems operating in the 6 to 18 GHz frequency range.
is a 10 W GaN MMIC Power Amplifier which operates between 6 and 18 GHz. The amplifier
typically provides 20 dB of small signal gain, +40 dBm of saturated output power.
The amplifier draws 680 mA quiescent current from a +28 VDC supply and features RF I/Os
that are matched to 50 Ohms for ease of use.
GaN MMIC amplifier also offers high output power capability, a compact die size and simplified
biasing, which make it ideal for integration into high power density Multi-Chip-Module (MCM)
and subsystem applications.
is Hittite's fifth GaN MMIC amplifier to be released during 2013, along with the previously
released 2-6 GHz, 25W
and the 2-20 GHz, 8 W
amplifiers. All five GaN MMIC power amplifiers complement Hittite's extensive line of microwave
power amplifiers which provide continuous frequency coverage from 0.01 to 86 GHz. For inquiries
and pricing information, please contact
Datasheets can be requested on-line at
