The HMC6980 is a GaAs MMIC PHEMT Power Amplifier in a miniature, hermetic module with replaceable SMA connectors which operates between 0.01 GHz and 20 GHz. The amplifier provides 12 dB of gain, up to +36 dBm output IP 3 and up to +28 dBm of output power at 1 dB gain compression. Gain flatness is excellent from 2 - 18 GHz making the HMC6980 ideal for EW, ECM, Radar, Fiber Optic and test equipment applications. The wideband amplifier I/Os are internally matched to 50 Ohms and are DC blocked. Integrated voltage regulators allow for flexible biasing of both the negative and positive supply pins, while internal bias sequencing circuitry assures robust operation.
