We are looking for amplifiers in 1-20 MHz band to output 10 W, we have found 2 such amplifiers in a close range– HMC8500 and HMC1099; they both operate in the 0.01-1.1 GHz range. We were wondering if the amplifier can operate below 10 MHz, specifically7 in 1-10 MHz range?
On the datasheet I read that both amplifiers are internally prematched to 50Ω, and external matching improves the performance. Would you happen to know how do the amplifiers perform when the output is mismatched? Would it just result in reflections based on the output impedance?
