Functional Diagram
General Description
The HMC308 & HMC308E are low cost MESFET
MMIC amplifiers that operate from a single +3 to
+5V supply from 0.8 to 3.8 GHz. The surface mount
SOT26 amplifier can be used as a broadband amplifier stage or used with external matching for optimized narrow band applications. With Vdd biased at
+5V, the HMC308 & HMC308E offers 18 dB of gain
and +20 dBm of saturated output power while requiring only 53 mA of current. This amplifier is ideal as
a driver amplifier for transmitters or for use as a
local oscillator (LO) amplifier to increase drive levels
for passive mixers. The amplifier occupies 0.014 in2
(9 mm2), making it ideal for compact radio designs.

The circuit board used in the final application should
use RF circuit design techniques. Signal lines should
have 50 ohm impedance while the package ground
leads 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.
