General Description
The HMC577LC4B is a x2 active broadband frequency multiplier utilizing GaAs PHEMT technology in a
leadless RoHS compliant SMT package. When driven
by a +5 dBm signal, the multiplier provides +20 dBm
typical output power from 27 to 31 GHz. The Fo and
3Fo isolations are >55 dBc at 29 GHz. The
HMC577LC4B is ideal for use in LO multiplier chains
for Pt to Pt & VSAT Radios yielding reduced parts
count vs. traditional approaches. The low additive
SSB Phase Noise of -128 dBc/Hz at 100 kHz offset
helps maintain good system noise performance. The
RoHS packaged HMC577LC4B eliminates the need
for wire bonding, and allows the use of surface mount
manufacturing techniques.

[1] Reference this number when ordering complete evaluation PCB
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. 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.
