The HMC1049LP5E is a GaAs MMIC Low Noise
Amplier which operates between 0.3 and 20 GHz.
This LNA provides 15 dB of small signal gain, 1.8 dB
noise gure, and output IP3 of 29 dBm, while requiring
only 70 mA from a +7 V supply. The P1dB output
power of 14.5 dBm enables the LNA to function as
a LO driver for balanced, I/Q or image reject mixers.
Vdd can be applied to pin 2 or pin 21. Pin 21 will
require a bias tee. The HMC1049LP5E amplier I/Os
are internally matched to 50 Ohms and the device is
supplied in a compact, leadless QFN 5x5 mm surface
mount package.

The circuit board used in the application should use
RF circuit design techniques. Signal lines should
have 50 Ohm impedance while the package ground
leads and exposed paddle should be connected
directly to the ground plane similar to that shown.
A sufficient number of via holes should be used to
connect the top and bottom ground planes. The
evaluation circuit board shown is available from Hit-
tite upon request.
