General Description
Functional Diagram
The HMC962LC4 is a self-biased GaAs MMIC Low
Noise Amplifier housed in a leadless 4x4 mm ceramic
surface mount package. The amplifier operates
between 7.5 and 26.5 GHz, providing 13 dB of small
signal gain, 2.5 dB noise figure, and output IP3 of
+23 dBm, while requiring only 70 mA from a +3.5 V
supply. The P1dB output power of +13 dBm enables
the LNA to function as a LO driver for balanced, I/Q
or image reject mixers. The HMC962LC4 also features I/Os that are DC blocked and internally matched to 50 Ohms, making it ideal for high capacity
microwave radios and VSAT applications.
Electrical Specifications, TA = +25° C, Vdd1 = Vdd2 = +3.5V, Idd = 70 mA

The circuit board used in this 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 board should be mounted
to an appropriate heat sink. The evaluation circuit
board shown is available from Hittite upon request.
