A SMT (surface mount technology) MMIC (monolithic microwave integrated circuit) frequency multiplier (x2) and power amplifier has been designed for DBS (direct broadcast satellite) and other commercial applications. Using PHEMT technology this MMIC takes a 15 GHz input signal and passes it through a harmonic frequency doubler and then through three stages of power amplification at 30 GHz. This MMIC provides an output power of 21 dBm, fundamental suppression of 45 dBc and is stable across all voltages and temperatures. This single MMIC SMT solution frequency multiplier and power amplifier is unique compared to any known or published data.
