Successive Detection Log Video Amplifier Operates Over the Full 0.5 GHz to 18.5 GHz Range

Mon, 08/08/2011 - 12:49pm
SDLVAHittite Microwave Corporation launched a new Successive Detection Log Video Amplifier (SDLVA) that operates over the full 0.5 GHz to 18.5 GHz frequency range. Available in a 4 mm x 4 mm surface mount package, the HMC1013LP4E extends the dynamic range to 67 dB and carries a class 1A ESD rating (250V HBM). The small size and wideband performance make the SDLVA suitable for designers with space and power-constrained applications including EW and ELINT receivers, DF radar, ECM, IFM systems and missile guidance.

Also appropriate for pulsed signal applications requiring high amplitude accuracy, the HMC1013LP4E employs a successive compression topology which allows for the processing of high level signals up to +5 dBm. During typical operation, the HMC1013LP4E provides a nominal slope of 15 mV/dB.


The HMC1013LP4E is capable of processing RF pulses with amplitudes from -62 dBm to +5 dBm with 5 ns rise times, and with less than 40 ns of recovery time. The HMC1013LP4E exhibits frequency flatness of better than ±2 dB, while logarithmic linearity is better than ±2 dB over the full -40 °C to +85 °C operating temperature range. The HMC1013LP4E features significantly lower power compared with competing discrete and module SDLVA solutions, consuming only 600 mW from a single +3.3V supply.
