The HMC7357LP5GE from Hittite is a three-stage, GaAs pHEMT MMIC Power Amplifier which operates from 5.5 to 8.5 GHz. The amplifier provides 29 dB of gain, 35 dBm of saturated output power, an efficiency of 34% and requires 8 V of supply. It has an Output IP3 of 41.5 dBm, an input return loss of 14 dB and requires 1200 ma of current. The amplifier is ideal for linear applications such as high capacity point-to-point and point-to-multi-point radios or VSAT/SATCOM applications. It is packaged in a leadless 5x5 mm plastic surface mount package.
