Hittite Microwave Corp. released two new GaAs pHEMT MMIC low noise amplifiers (LNA) which are designed for cellular/3G basestation and repeater applications.

According to the press release, the HMC376LP3E and the HMC382LP3E operate from 700MHz to 1,000MHz, and 1,700MHz to 2,200MHz, respectively. These new LNAs require little or no external matching, and are footprint/pinout compatible such that a single PC board design can be used to implement either part number. With noise figures as low as 0.6dB, and up to 36dBm of output IP3, the HMC376LP3E and the HMC382LP3E MMIC LNAs are suited for front-end receivers, and repeaters in GSM/GPRS, CDMA, WCDMA, and TD-SCDMA applications.

Both the HMC376LP3E and HMC382LP3E are housed in RoHS-compliant 3-by-3mm Pb-free QFN packages, operate from a single 5V supply, and feature an externally adjustable supply current which enables the designer to tailor the power consumption and linearity performance for any application.

Samples and evaluation PC boards for all SMT packaged products are available from stock and can be ordered via the company's e-commerce site or via direct purchase order.
