Can the HMC407MS8G PD pin be used to pulse modulate the device? Is the switching speed indicated (30 ns) the time to fully enable the amplifier?
Moved this question on the HMC407 to the Hittite Microwave Products from ADI community.
Power down pin can be used to enable disable the device. You can also apply pulse signal to PD pin.
Switching speed is defined as below.
Ton is the time measured from 50% of triggered Vctl to 90% of the detected RF output
Toff is the time measured from 50% of triggered Vctl to 10% of the detected RF output
