Analog Devices Inc. HMC8342 x2 Active Broadband Frequency Multiplier

Analog Devices Inc. HMC8342 x2 Active Frequency Multiplier is a GaAs (Gallium Arsenide) MMIC (Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit) designed to provide 15dBm typical output power when driven by a 5dBm signal. The output frequency range is from 22GHz to 42GHz, and the input fundamental and third harmonic isolations measured at the output are -23dBc and -20dBc at an output frequency of 30GHz. The HMC8342 is ideal for use in LO (Local Oscillator) multiplier chains for point-to-point and VSAT radios, resulting in a reduced parts count compared to traditional designs.

The Analog Devices Inc. HMC8342 x2 Active Frequency Multiplier is offered in a 16-terminal Ceramic Leadless Chip Carrier (CLCC) package with an integrated heat sink.
