• Decoupling network for HMC943APM5E

    Hi - The HMC943APM5E datasheet shows a requirement for 3 decoupling caps per qty. 8 Vd and qty. 2 Vg pins; that is a total of 30 capacitors.  Do you have any recommendations for a simplified decoupling network that will result in performance that meets…

  • HMC997LC4 & HMC943APM5E RF output issue

    Hi,

    We're using the HMC997LC4 VGA in series with the HMC943APM5E PA device (VGA used to pre-amp before the PA).

    However, the power output at the PA is about 30dB lower than expected.

    We can only get up to +1dBm on the output of the PA before it saturates…

  • Can HMC943APM5E amplifier be used for 35 GHz ?
