The HMC5929LS6 is a 4 stage GaAs pHEMT MMIC 1 Watt Power Amplifier which operates between 40 and 43.5 GHz. It provides 19 dB of gain, +30 dBm of saturated output power, and 15% PAE from a +6V supply. The amplifier has an IP3 of +36 dBm and is ideal for high linearity applications in military and space as well as point-to-point and point-to-multi-point radios. It is available in a ceramic air cavity package which exhibits low thermal resistance and is compatible with surface mount manufacturing techniques. The RF I/Os are internally matched and DC blocked for ease of integration into higher level assemblies.
