General Description
The HMC443LP4 & HMC443LP4E are active
miniature x4 frequency multipliers utilizing InGaP
GaAs HBT technology in 4x4 mm leadless surface
mount packages. Power output is +4 dBm typical
from a 5V supply voltage and varies little vs. input
power, temperature and supply voltage. Suppression
of undesired fundamental and sub-harmonics is >25
dBc typical with respect to output signal level. The
low additive SSB phase noise of -142 dBc/Hz at 100
kHz offset helps the user maintain good system noise
performance. The HMC443LP4 & HMC443LP4E are
ideal for use in LO multiplier chains allowing reduced
parts count vs. traditional approaches.

The circuit board used in the final application
should be generated with proper 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. The evaluation
circuit board shown is available from Hittite upon
request.
