Hittite launch new product lines

Hittite Microwave Corporation are to introduce 36 new products, including 3 new product lines, at the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium in San Francisco, June 11-16. The new product lines are: Synthesizers, Data Converters and Power Detectors.

Hittite’s new Synthesizer Product Line is the HMC-T1000A 10MHz to 8GHz Dual Synthesized Signal Generator. It is comprised of two independently controllable/programmable synthesizers, and combines ultra low SSB phase noise of -135 dBc/Hz at 100 KHz offset, with fast 10 microsecond switching in a standard 19” rack-mountable 3U chassis.

The HMC660LC4B Wideband Track-and-Hold Amplifier is the first product within the new Data Converter Product Line. Fabricated in a SiGe BiCMOS process, the HMC660LC4B is designed for direct sampling of full-scale 1Vpp signals with up to 4.5GHz input bandwidth with a maximum 3GHz clock rate.

The HMC600LP4(E) is the first of a family of leading edge power detectors to be introduced within the new Power Detector Product Line. The HMC600LP4(E) Logarithmic Detector/Controller is fabricated in a SiGe BiCMOS process, and delivers a high ±3 dB dynamic range of up to 75 dB, with outstanding accuracy and temperature stability from 50 to 4000 MHz.

Hittite will also introduce new products in its ranges of: amplifiers, attenuators, active multipliers, mixers and converters, switches, and VCOs.

Full details of all the new products can be obtained from Hittite’s booth #2145 at IMS 2006, or at: http://www.hittite.com
