The HMC6981LS6 is a four stage GaAs pHEMT MMIC Power Amplifier which operates between 15 and 20 GHz. The amplifier provides 26 dB of gain, with a 33.5 dBm P1dB, 43.5 dBm OIP3 and 34.5 dBm of saturated output power with a +6V supply with 25% efficiency. The power amplifier is ideal for high linearity applications in military and space as well as point-to-point and point-to-multi-point radios. The HMC6981LS6 is housed 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 to 50 Ohms. It is housed in a RoHS compliant 6 x 6 mm ceramic QFN leadless package and is compatible with high volume surface mount manufacturing.
