Description
Agilent’s AMMP-6420 is a high gain amplifier in a surface
mount package that operates from 6 to 18 GHz. It is a costeffective alternative in commercial communications systems
to discrete FET hybrid or MIC amplifiers. The MMIC has a
partial input and output match to 50Ω (-5dB typical return
loss) but can be easily externally matched by single element
lossy or reactive means (inductor or capacitor) for 20%
frequency coverage (or 100% coverage if used in a balance
configuration with Lange coupler) The MMIC is
unconditionally stable over all frequencies and bias
conditions. Bias can be applied from either side. Gate voltage
is set using the Vg pin to optimize for linear or saturated
power amplification. A reference and output detector allows
differential output power detection over 15 dB of range. It is
fabricated in a PHEMT process to provide exceptional power
and gain performance.

Outline Drawing
Recommended SMT Attachment
The AMMP Packaged Devices are compatible with
high volume surface mount PCB assembly processes.
The PCB material and mounting pattern, as defined in
the data sheet, optimizes RF performance and is
strongly recommended. An electronic drawing of the
land pattern is available from www.agilent.com/view/rf
or upon request from Agilent Application Engineering.

Follow ESD precautions while handling packages.
Handling should be along the edges with tweezers
or from topside if using a vacuum collet.
Recommended attachment is solder paste. Please
see recommended solder reflow profile.
Conductive epoxy is not recommended. Hand
soldering is not recommended.
Apply solder paste using either a stencil printer or
dot placement. The volume of solder paste will be
dependent on PCB and component layout and
should be controlled to ensure consistent
mechanical and electrical performance.
Excessive solder will degrade RF performance.
Follow solder paste and vendor’s
recommendations when developing a solder
reflow profile. A standard profile will have a
steady ramp up from room temperature to the preheat temperature to avoid damage due to thermal
shock.
Packages have been qualified to withstand a peak
temperature of 235°C for 15 seconds. Verify that
the profile will not expose device beyond these
limits.
Clean off flux per vendor’s recommendations.
Clean the module with Acetone. Rinse with
alcohol. Allow the module to fully dry before
testing.
