The HHPAE-459 power amplifier, available from Renaissance Electronics covers the frequency range from 71.0 to 76.0 GHz. It has an output P1dB of +18 dBm with small signal gain of 29 dB.

MMIC technology is employed for high reliability and repeatability. A single +6.5 VDC bias feeds an internal voltage regulator and bias sequencer to power the amplifier, freeing the user from the complications of a dual bias configuration.

The amplifier was designed for use in transmitters for E-Band radio communications systems.
