The HMC-C077 is a GaAs HBT Ultra Low Noise Amplifier in a miniature, hermetic module designed to operate between 1.5 and 5 GHz. This high dynamic range amplifier module provides 14 dB of gain, 4.5 dB noise figure and up to +22 dBm of output power with a single supply of +7V. The ultra low phase noise contribution of -163 dBc/Hz at 1 kHz offset, enables superior modulation accuracy within transceiver architectures. The wideband distributed amplifier I/O’s are internally matched to 50 Ohms and DC blocked for robust performance. The module features removable SMA connectors which can be detached to allow direct connection of the I/O pins to a microstrip or coplanar circuit.
