General Description
The HMC617LP3(E) is a GaAs PHEMT MMIC
Low Noise Amplifier that is ideal for Cellular/3G and
LTE/WiMAX/4G basestation front-end receivers
operating between 550 and 1200 MHz. The amplifier
has been optimized to provide 0.5 dB noise figure,
16 dB gain and +37 dBm output IP3 from a single
supply of +5V. Input and output return losses are
excellent and the LNA requires minimal external
matching and bias decoupling components. The
HMC617LP3(E) shares the same package and
pinout with the HMC618LP3(E) 1.7 - 2.2 GHz LNA.
The HMC617LP3(E) can be biased with +3V to +5V
and features an externally adjustable supply current
which allows the designer to tailor the linearity
performance of the LNA for each application. The
HMC617LP3(E) offers improved noise figure versus
the previously released HMC372LP3(E) and the
HMC376LP3(E).

[1]
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.
