Availability and full design support capabilities for a new ultra-wideband power amplifier module from Analog Devices have been announced by Richardson RFPD. The HMC-C582 is a GaAs MMIC pHEMT power amplifier in a miniature, hermetic module with replaceable SMA connectors that operates between 0.01GHz and 20GHz.
The device typically provides 24dB of gain, up to +36dBm output IP3, and up to +26dBm of output power at 1dB gain compression. Inputs/outputs (I/Os) are internally matched to 50 Ω and are DC blocked. Integrated voltage regulators allow flexible biasing and sequencing control for robust operation.
Excellent gain flatness across the operating frequency range makes the new amplifier module ideal for electronic warfare (EW), electronic countermeasures (ECM), radar, fiber optic, and test equipment applications.
According to ADI, additional key features of the HMC-C582 include single 15 V supply; gain flatness: +/- 1.5 dB (@ 2-20 GHz); dimensions of 1.75in x 1.62in x 0.525in and hermetic ML-4-1 packaging.
