22 GHz - 42 GHz Output, Active Frequency Multiplier: HMC8342

Source: Analog Devices

The HMC8342 is a gallium arsenide (GaAs), monolithic microware integrated circuit (MMIC), ×2 active broadband frequency multiplier. When driven by a 5 dBm signal, the multiplier provides 15 dBm typical output power. 

The output frequency range is from 22 GHz to 42 GHz, and the input fundamental and third harmonic isolations measured at the output are −23 dBc and −20 dBc, respectively, at an output frequency of 30 GHz. The HMC8342 is ideal for use in LO multiplier chains for point to point and VSAT radios, resulting in a reduced parts count vs. traditional design approaches.

Applications Include: 

  • Clock generation
  • Point to point and very small aperture terminal (VSAT) radios
  • Test instrumentation
  • Military and space
