HMC8410LP2FE operation below 10 MHz

Hello, 

I want to use the HMC8410LP2FE my low band path.  Can this amp be used down to the 1 MHz/ 500 kHz range?  Is there potential s-parameter data for this?  Does it need an external matching network for potential instability?  

Thanks,

Hannah

    Hi HJ_spex,

                         I  will have to look into this and get back to you, Blocking caps and bias inductors currently limit the lower freq to 10 MHz.

    Are you trying to cover the entire range from 500 KHz to 10 GHz?

    Regards,

    Hi HJ_spex,

                        I don't have S-parameters below 10 MHz. I confirmed that there isn't anything internal that would prevent prevent operation down to 500 KHz. The challenge becomes creating a broadband bias network. This can be done with cascaded inductors carefully selected to minimize resonances. I have created such a network for  a similar device, but only extended the range down to 1 MHz. I've attached the work that was done for that device.
