[HMC8205BF10] 10 ns-width pulse input and output?


I want to get output Voltage larger than 100 V peak to peak.

So I have some questions in the data sheet from figure 25.

< Output Power (POUT), Gain vs input power at 1 GHz >

for example, when 

Input: 24 dBm / Gain: 21 dB / output: 45 dBm    


Input: (~3.5 Vrms) = (~10 Vpp)   /  output: (~40 Vrms) = (~110 Vpp)   right?? 

Then what would outcome be when I input 10 V-10 ns widh pulse to "HMC8205BF10" ?

How can I calculate the out voltage?  

and the pulse width of outcome would be similar to input?

    Hi SeeWoo,

                        I've attached a table of power levels and their corresponding voltages. This table is with respect to a 50 ohm characteristic impedance.  The HMC8205B is an RF power amplifier and we normally talk about its input and out put levels in terms of power and not voltage.
