HMC-C024 Hittite Amplifier Other
The HMC-C024 is an Amplifier from Hittite. An amplifier is a type of electronic test equipment that amplifies radiofrequency (RF) and microwave signals using the antenna. Amplifiers are ideal when used for electromagnetic interference (EMI) testing, cell phones, microwaves, radio communications, and other such applications.
- Gain: 15 dB
- Saturated Output Power: +24 dBm
- Spurious-Free Operation
- Regulated Supply and Bias Sequencing
- Hermetically Sealed Module
- Field Replaceable SMA connectors
- -55 to +85°C Operating Temperature
The Hittite Microwave Corporation HMC-C024 is a GaAs MMIC PHEMT Distributed Driver Amplifier in a miniature, hermetic module with replaceable SMA connectors. It operates between 10 MHz and 20 GHz.
The amplifier provides 15 dB of gain, 3 to 4 dB noise figure and +24 dBm of saturated output power. Deviation from linear phase of only ±2 degrees from 0.01 to 10 GHz make the Hittite Microwave Corporation HMC-C024 ideal for OC192 fiber optic LN/MZ modulator driver applications.
The wideband amplifier I/Os are internally matched to 50 Ohms and are internally 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.
