Hittite adds 10W, 6-18GHz PA to GaN MMIC product line

Hittite Microwave Corp of Chelmsford, MA, USA (which designs and supplies analog, digital and mixed-signal RF, microwave and millimeter-wave ICs, modules and subsystems as well as instrumentation) has launched a gallium nitride (GaN) MMIC power amplifier (PA) that is claimed to offer significant performance, size and durability advantages for communications, test instrumentation and radar systems operating in the 6-18GHz frequency range.

The HMC7149 is a 10W GaN MMIC PA that typically provides 20dB of small-signal gain and +40dBm of saturated output power. It draws 680mA quiescent current from a +28V DC supply and features RF I/Os that are matched to 50 Ohms for ease of use.

The PA also offers high-output-power capability, a compact die size and simplified biasing, which make it suitable for integration into high-power-density multi-chip module (MCM) and subsystem applications.

The HMC7149 is Hittite’s fifth GaN MMIC amplifier to be launched during 2013, following the 2-6GHz, 25W HMC1086, HMC1086F10 and 2-20GHz, 8W HMC1087 and HMC1087F10 power amplifiers (launched in July). All five GaN MMIC PAs complement Hittite’s line of microwave power amplifiers, which provides continuous frequency coverage from 0.01GHz to 86GHz.
