Functional Diagram
General Description
The HMC6187LP4E is a GaAs MMIC pHEMT analog
variable gain amplifier and/or driver amplifier which
operates between 27 and 31.5 GHz and is ideal for
microwave radio applications. The amplifier provides
up to 19 dB of gain, output P1dB of up to +24 dBm,
and up to +31 dBm of output IP3 at maximum gain,
while requiring 230 mA from a +5V supply. A gain
control voltage (Vctrl) is provided to allow variable
gain control up to 13 dB. Gain flatness is excellent
making the HMC6187LP4E ideal for EW, ECM and
radar applications. The HMC6187LP4E is housed in
a RoHS compliant 4 x 4 mm plastic QFN leadless
package and is compatible with high volume surface
mount manufacturing.

The circuit board used in the application should use
RF circuit design techniques. Signal lines should
have 50 Ohm impedance while the package ground
leads and exposed paddle should be connected
directly to the ground plane similar to that shown.
A sufficient number of via holes should be used to
connect the top and bottom ground planes. The
evaluation circuit board shown is available from Hittite upon request.
