Hi, I have a doubt concerning the HMC996LP4E. In the datasheet it is said that the gain is controlled by a control voltage. I'd like to know whether this voltage also controls the saturated output power.
Yes Psat and P1dB is effected by Vctrl. Please check the `P1dB vs. Temperature` and `Psat vs. Temperature` plots on the DS.
Which shows the change on Pout vs freq and Vctrl.
Thank you Kagan for the response!
Could I get curves of P1dB vs frequency and Psat vs frequency for more values of Vctrl?
Also, is that possible to send me a curve of Pout vs Pin at 8GHz (Power Compression @ 8GHz)? My Pin is 9dBm and I'm not sure whether this input power is enough to excite the amplifier.
Unfortunately, we only have data for -1 and -4.5 V.
See attached spread sheet for PIPO data @ 8 GHz.
